Thanks!
I will be doing fowlr and if I ever change to reef I'll test the citrus goby and arrow crab with a cheap coral first, and if they kill it I'll rehome them.

Oh, caught that you have a scooter in the list, they can be very difficult to feed sometimes as they eat pods like mandarins do. I trained mine in about a month to eat frozen food but it took a lot of dedication and time. They also need very frequent feedings which can cause water parameter issues, I know this first hand. LOL My nitrates are always super high in that tank no matter what I do.

Hmm that's a tough one. Are you looking for another bottom dweller other than the yellow watchman goby? You could instead of the YWG get a shrimp goby like a pink spotted, they get bigger and would probably fit your size tank better. I have both a pink spotted and a yellow watchman and the YWG is quite small actually, he is in a biocube now. The shrimp goby I have in my 125g and he seems to fit that tank better.

If you want some mid water active fish maybe some chromis? I have blue reef chromis and they are awesome, they are always schooling together.

Just a matter of what you like is all. Any other fish you might have your eye on?

1x peppermint shrimp
3x tiger sand conch
2x turbo snail
Any stocking suggestions or cuc suggestions?
Please help!
This is my stock list minus the scooter blenny
I'd like some more mid water swimmers I already include chromis
I might just get a larger tank like a 75 instead of the 1700$ red sea max because it is so expensive

No coral banded or arrow crab. They will most likely fight an kill all your other friendly inverts. Also the lemonpeel angel is probably going to nip corals
