Now I'm a bit worried. This is what I really want.
2 Ocellaris Clownfish
1 Fridmani Pseudochromis
1 six line wrasse
2 green chromis
2 Kauderns cardinal fish

2 scarlet cleaner shrimp
3 Hawaii feather dusters

I also wanted various crabs and snails to attack algae. Also coral which I know nothing about.

Would I have to take the damsels out to achieve this? Is this too much for my 55 gallon tank?

I think the stock list is fine for a 55g. BUT you may want to remove the damsels. Or you could wait and see what happens. If theres aggression you could take them out then.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ok. Well the next set is the clownfish so we'll see how they interact with each other. Does anybody have any tips on corals I can start with?

Mushrooms or zoas from experience just starting my tank as well. They ae doing great so far in the past two weeks open everyday nice color. Just added a Duncan yesterday it's doing good fed a couple mysis shrimp this morning. All depends on the type of lighting you have tho. I have a four bulb t5 with two white and two actinic lights.

Haha no problem..pics when you get them.

So you know, there are several different varieties of xenia. Pulsing (flexes in and out), blue xenia, and your regular red/pink
