Compatibility

Alright so I've just finished adding all my livestock to my tank over the last few months. As far as I know, everything I have is compatible with each other, but I wanted to ask the experts here to be sure. I've got:

2 peppermint shrimp.
2 emerald crabs.
1 snowflake clownfish.
1 purple / Indigo dotty back.
9 Kenya tree coral - small
1 dragon eye polyp / zoanthid.
1 polyp colony.

25G high tank.

Awesome! I'm hoping my polyps do OK under only 50 watts ofn light. Also, any idea if they reproduce and spread rapidly? I love them! The peppermint shrimp was checking them out when I first put them in the tank and I was worried that he might try and eat them. But he seems satisfied now. Also bought a trace elements supplement today as well.

Peppermint shrimp won't bother corals, but Kenya trees spread all over the tank, and rapidly!

I used to have them in my 10G, so about 3 months probably. They've only been in the 25G for about a month.

Nice list. Watch the dotty back. They can be aggressive towards anything shaped or colored like themselves.

I notice the dottyback will get curious with the shrimp every now and again, but everyone is still alive so that's a good sign on an unrelated topic, I only have 48 watts on my tank. I've heard this isn't enough for my size tank. It's a T5 HO dual fixture. I'm definitely not a light expert especially coming from a freshwater background so maybe someone can give me some pointers? All my corals are listed in the OP
