I have a red head Solon fairy wrasse and have no trouble with him eating. He is a bit aggressive towards my other wrasse but not much, just a little chasing at meal time.

I really enjoy how the cardinalfish look, very distinct, but I suppose i will just do a small school (5 or 6) firefish instead. Thanks for the input everyone!

So, the finalized stocking (at least for fish):
1 Coral Beauty
1 Red Head Solon Fairy Wrasse
1 Engineer Goby
2 Ocellaris Clowns
6 Firefish

Everything sound good? And would there be any territorial disputes if they were all introduced in the same day?

That would be a large bio-load at once. I'd add a few every couple weeks. Except the clowns and firefish, I'd add them all at once. I'd also do the firefish first as they are the least territorial and need to stake out hiding places.

Not territorial but perhaps a spike in parameters! I don't think it's a good idea to add them all at once. Do a couple at a time, wait a week etc. obviously do the pairs and school together tho...

Oh, okay. I forgot about that part. The first time, there were only a few total, so that wasnt to be worried about. Thanks for that. So the clowns and firefish first, probably the goby next, and then the angelfish followed by the wrasse?

week 1 fire fish
week 3 clowns
week 5 goby
week 7 angel
week 9 wrasse
this will help give your tank a chance to build its bb slowly over time and not overload your system all at once
