Stocking help

Right now in my 55 I have 2 clowns and a scooter for fish. I'd like to put one more for a show piece but it has to be coral safe. Any thoughts

I'll check them out. I'm not trying to put a lot of fish in my tank. Focusing more on corals

that really depends on your system.

PS. my favorite fish for that size of a tank would be anthias and chromises.

Nice stock list but IMO I wouldn't trust a coral beauty with corals that I have or plan in having. Beautiful fish though

I thought so also. They need at least 180 gallons and I'd want an 8 ft tank for it. I've thought about getting a yellow tang but I'm not sure about that either
