Right now the tank came with a flame angel, a squirrel fish, a mated pair a neon damsel (he's not staying I know the bullying they do.

Now, in my 55 I have an engineer goby, blue devil Fiji, one clown, and two azure.

I'd like to add a yellow or a blue regal. But I'm not sure if all of this would be over stocking.

I've got a piece of equipment in the sump that I have no idea what it is. It's got little white balls in it the size of bbs.

Gonna be a learning curve for sure.

Whelp I've almost got all the water in. A few more hours and I'll drop the heater in and hopefully get the sump running so I can get these guys back in the tank. Since I have basically 2 sets of live rock going in should I attempt to arrange the rock 1st, or should I place the fish 1st then arrange?
