OK so this is not my tank but my dad's. He is upgrading from 2 small tanks to a bigger 55 gallon tank. It's sump is 40 gallons and it has all the fancy saltwater equipment. What would be a good fish that is the star of the tank. Something that would be like a angelfish or gourami in a freshwater community tank.

Tank stocking:
1 Engineer Goby
3 Green Chromis
A bunch of snails
Coral in the fututre

A dwarf angelfish might be nice. Depends on what type corals you want. A pair of captive breed fancy clown fish would also be nice.
The engineer goby could get huge btw.

I love wrasses. And gobies. Best captive reef fish you can get IMO.
