I do agree, that is why I suggested bigger for the tang, my chromis all school at the top of the tank away from the rock, of course I only have 60 lbs which covered the lower half of my 55

so lack of swimming space.

So are my fish going to get stressed out then do you think? Or will their fins get jacked up or something. I need to know how this is going to hurt my fish? , maybe I should just hock the 55 and switch to something bigger.

The thing that no one has touched on is that your fish will grow. Your tiny wrasse will get alot bigger not to mention your other fish. That in the long run is your problem. If you care so much about your fishes health I would take a few back and then decide which ones you want most.
