I have only had the stock I have now so can't comment on fire fish , dotty backs , basslet cardinals or gramma
But will say kole tang . Amazing fish !
Very energetic and leaves little kiss marks on the glass .
Foxface .
Nice fish , it does eat A LOT !
not the smartest fish ,
Not the toughest if you think of it as a venomous fish it should be able to hold it's weight .
No .
The first 5 mins in my tank got his butt handed to itself by my tang .
And got to meet my anemone first hand , up close and personal .
False clowns and anemone are a absolute must !
As for gobies .
I had 2 of the diamond sand sifting gobies .
They both disappear over time .
The third one is doing well .
Yellow tailed damsel I only have 1
He stays to himself .
I was told they can be VERY aggressive .

Very grateful to all of you! This discussion has helped me tremendously in trying to narrow my stock list. Based on your advice and aesthetics I'm currently leaning towards:
Clown goby
Watchman goby/pistol shrimp
Ocellaris clown pair
Kole tang
Royal gramma
Added in that order? Or maybe tang last? Thanks for the advice about the gramma with the dottyback - good to know as the dottyback does pop into my head sometimes.
And one more question - I currently have no sump. Due to space constraints the largest sump I could add is probably 10g. Would that do me any good or just be too small to be worthwhile?

I have a 20 gal on my 90 reef there is about 14 gal refuge in which my macro grows like mad. I have tried cardinals before with no luck, but the trick seems to be acclimate very slowly. I have a pair that seem to be doing great.
