I here's my new stock list for a biocube 29 reef:
1 occ clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 yellow watchman goby
1 purple firefish
1 blue/green chromis

I'll have a skimmer and run chemi pure elite plus a fuge with chaeto and mangroves so filtration is prime.
What do you guys think?

I like all of those fish, nice choices! I am just not sure about the single Chromis, aren't they happier when they are with some of their own kind?

List looks good, very well thought out it seems. Glad you are taking the time to get it just right.

Just keep up on your water changes, 6 fish in a cube is pushing it a bit and water quality tends to slip. I'm battling nitrates now in my biocube, but it's mostly because of my feeding schedule i think. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I like the sixline idea. It's nice cause you have a covered top and they are jumpers so I think it's a good opportunity to get one. if I had the room I'd get one. LOL
