The chromis is the only caveat to your fish stock. They are a bad choice, do better with 3 or more, and will mess with you're tank parameters quite a bit. The two clowns, blenny, and 6 line is already maxing your tank out.

You are going to run into an issue (eventually) with your LPS. The torch for example is going to get big pretty quick. Expect a lot of aggression with your corals. I personally would pic one or another. Brain corals, depending on what you get are extremely aggressive as well. This is my folded brain on my 29. In 6 months, it has outgrown my tank, running out of sandbed.

I would re-evaluate your stocking list... Of course I'm sure there will be some disagreements, however, appropriately stocked tanks are the ones that maintain the best reef system.

You have made some very good points I think I need to re think what fish will do best...... Coral I was thinking I have a bunch of room in the sand and if I put the torch in one corner and the frogspawn in the other next to the rocks it would keep them far apart but you don't think that's a good idea

Gives it a nice look of it tapering into the sand and it gave it a taller look as well.... What do you guys think

I want an open swimming area for fish and more room for sand dwelling corals I am still thinking of putting 2 more pieces of rock one on each side but I haven't decided if I want to go that route yet

And I am putting a bunch of rubble in the back to help compensate for the lack of rock in the display
