New Additions?

Ok, I am itching to add some new fish to my tank.

Currently I have :

Purple Tang
2 Clowns
Firefish
Royal Gramma
Cleaner Shrimp
Red Fire Shrimp
Snails and Crabs


What I want to add:

Firefish maybe 4 more.
Black & White Butterflyfish
Yellow Pyramid Butterflyfish
Magenta Pseudochromis
Yellow Watchman Goby
Warpaint Clown Goby
Blue Hippo
Pin Cushion Urchin



Naso Tang or Powder Brown Tang, Will that get along with the Purple, They dont really look the same...

Just looking for some color in my tank, anyone have any other suggestions?

Anyone have expiereince with sea slugs? They are really neat looking.

SW Plants?

Red Gracillaria
Red Algae Plant
Mermaids Fan Plant
Fern Plant

Are sponges difficult to keep? Sea Fans?

I have no exp with coral, I want to start tho..
What is easy to start with?

Leathers, Red Chili/Cactus Coral, Mushrooms, Polyps?

What size tank do you have?

I would NOT do a pseudochromis with the royal gramma. Pseudochromis are remarkably pugnacious for their size, and I hear they're relentless as well.

Nudibranchs are often difficult because of specialized diets. Even Sea hares often end up starving to death if you don't have enough algae to support them

Also, as starter corals mushrooms and zoanthids are both pretty easy.

Sponges need good flow and don't tolerate any algae growing on them. Same thing with sea fans. Both are obligate filter feeders and can be challenging.

Purple tangs are one of the more aggressive tangs. And I agree with rutrag

Also be prepared for how big a blue hippo can get around 18 inches.

What would you recommend? I'm not picky I just want some color. My tank seems so bland. My purple is very active and seems like he's the only one in there.
