Stocking List

I have a 34 gallon reef tank. I was wondering if this stock list is alright.:
-2 Ocellaris clownfish
-2 Bangaii Cardinalfish
-1 Coral Beauty (People at my LFS have said it would be fine)
-1 Yellow Watchman Goby
Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

The coral beauty may nip at some corals.
The cardinals may not get along?
I started with 5 a couple years ago(in a 120) and now have 1!
They are pretty mean to each other if not in larger groups?

Do you think these are good beginner fish too? My LFS has told me to let the tank establish for around 9 months before adding the coral beauty and it will just eat algae off of the rocks.

They are easy to keep fish yes.
The coral beauty probably won't kill anything more just nip or pick.
The cardinals only bothered each other and my 1 is still swimming around with 2 clowns,a hawk and marine betta in the same 120!
It shouldn't take 9 months to get tank up to snuff but it is VERY respectable for them be on the safe side(refreshing!) with their advice!

34g the foot print of the tank makes it a tight fit for a coral beauty , now if the foot print was like a 40b you would be better off and have a better choice of fish ,
you need to consider fish size full grown
coral beauty aprox 4 inch
bangii cardinal aprox 4 inch
Ocellaris clownfish 2 1/2 / 3 inch
add up size of all fish it's aprox 18 inch
now hold up a tape measure to your tank measuring out 18 inch
now those 5 fish measure out to 18 inch thats like keeping 1 18 inch fish in that tank
I tried to put this in terms easy to understand hope it helps
