Stock List Plans

So im planning my stock list for my 25gallon tank.

25 gallons/45lb's of Live Rock

Royal Gramma
Yellow Watchman
Flame Angel
2x Clowns
Shrimp
Dwarf Hermits
Need Ideas for snails that will clean my sand
Star Fish

What are your thoughts? The flame angel will be bought small and will be in a 40 gallon in a year so dont worry about him Ill make sure hes happy.

How many dwarf Hermits should I have?

Also thinking of using Nassarius Snails for cleaning the sand, How many of these should I have?

The flame angel will probably stress out the rest of your fish in that size tank. If it doesn't work out expect to take out all the live rock to remove it. It took one week for my lemonpeel to stress out one royal gramma and a clown fish to the point that my royal gramma didn't eat and the clown fish was hiding. They were in a 55 gallon tank with no other fish.

In a 25 gallon tank I might put 3 blue legged hermits and 3 massarius snails.

What type of star fish are you going to get? It seems like the ones I like don't have a very long survival rate in an aquarium because of lack of food.

Everything iv read tells me the angel will be fine with the other fish as long as its the last fish to be put in the tank.

Good luck with that. My CB killed all my other fish in a 30 and was also the last fish introduced.

Some starfish eat sponges and only sponge, please research before buying one. As much as I want this one Saltwater Aquarium Starfish for Marine Reef Aquariums: Linckia Sea Star, Blue I will pass. I know their survival rate isn't that high so I am going to just look and wish this weekend.

Plus, if you ever decide on a reef, which is always where you will usually end up at, that angel could cause problems..

everyone I have talked to who owns a flame angel says that only sometimes they will nip at sps corals but they will leave basically everything else alone. Please know that when I made this stock list I did do extensive research and didnt just say these are the fish I like so they will just have to work.

Did i say you didnt do research? I bet you have done plenty. But, do you want to take the risk? Can you predict what a fish will do? If so, then go ahead
