Oh and one quick question... When I start to add live stock can I do it like one fish and one coral at the same time every three weeks?

I would add a fish or two at a time and keep an eye on your water parameters. every few weeks is a good time frame in my opinion.

As far as corals, I have added several at once, as many as five ro 6 at a time and was fine.

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

Cool!!! I'll probably do a few duncans... Do they coexist well? Are they hardy?

I have duncans and they grow really fast in my tank. I havent had any problems with them at all and they are super cool to look at

There might be local forums that you can join and find things too. I was looking at one in NJ and it is a good thing I don't live. My local forums are great I don't belong to a reef club but I have thought about. A nice thing about local forums is someone might have something laying around they aren't using it is to nice to throw out and they don't want to go through craigslist to get rid of it. I got 3 of my tanks off local forums.

***stock list update***

So I've decided I don't really want to take a chance with the angel fish

So here it is

2 ocellaris clowns
1 yellow watchman goby
1 bicolor dottyback(will that work?)
And I want one more, a big fish that will be the main attraction, one that when you look at the tank it's like BAM!!!(preferably rather big compared to the others)

Any ideas for the "BAM" fish???
Thanks
