Haha I don't think my reef would like it if I shook it or stirred it... Jk um stock wise I'd only pick 1 angel. It may work but odds are it won't. Also gotta be careful that they don't eat your corals. What's a key hole tang? Lol I think the stock is fine other than the two angels.
Invert wise I'd skip the Pom Pom. You will never ever see it in a tank that size. I know I barely saw mine in my 10 gallon.

Do you mean kole tang? And I agree on the 2 angels, and the warning about not being 100% reef safe

ive had 2 flame angels in my previous tanks with corals and havent had an issue, daily light feedings and adding in coral slowly with a mixed current in the tank keep em busy in my experience, i know about the 2 angels its just that i would love to have a yellow tang but ive had bad luck with both of my previous yellow tangs, one with crushed stomach and the other with ich.

I've kept Pom pom crabs in my 55 reef. You won't see them daily, but a pleasure when you do. They hide by nature, under a overhang. It is a hidden treat.

Well NOW my marine betta took care of all my inverts...but it used to be a very peaceful tank. I don't recall all the stocking as things in the tank have switched to focus more towards my clams rather than...mobile inverts.
