Stocking 55G

Hey guys,

I'm about to finally end the cycle of my 55G reef tank. I need suggestions on what fish and inverts to get, one of my staple fish that I really want is a Two Bar Rabbitfish (Yes I know he will get quite large for the aquarium, I will just be raising him). I'm not looking for anything difficult, or anything aggressive. My current inhabitants are: A Pajama Cardinal, a few frags of Polyps, two Mushrooms, two feather dusters, and a hermit crab.

Things I may consider in the future:
A relatively docile anemone (suggestions on this one please!)
Clownfish
More pajama Cardinals
Cleaner Shrimp
Cleaner Wrasse
Emerald Crab
Pom-Pom Crab
Nerite Snail
Docile Urchin
Anything that isn't excessively foul to my other inhabitants! Suggest away!

I would not go for a cleaner wrasse because of the feeding difficulty. Maybe you could replace that with a flasher or mystery wrasse.

Noted, I guess it makes sense too. They'd clean the entire tank and have nothing else to clean. I'll avoid them.

A neon goby or bicolor blenny would be nice.

Definitely agree with no cleaner wrasse. Do a simple search on them and you'll be desuaded quickly. A mated pair of ocellaris with an anemone is always nice. Maybe a dwarf angel (flame angel) or a hawkfish.

Yeah I'm getting pistol shrimp and some cleaner shrimp for sure, a 6 line wrasse is a possibility, as soon as I can I will be getting a sleeper-banded goby.
