100 gallon FOWLR w/ reef fish tank stock list

Hey guys,

I am moving in late October and I decided that it was time to switch from FOWLR aggressive to FOWLR reef. I'm getting rid of my dogface puffer, who killed of my blue tang. . So I am completely open to the invert world now. Here is what I was thinking, this would take a couple of months to complete though,

2 ocellaris clowns
5 green chromis
3 firefish
1 royal gramma
1 sixline wrasse
1 cleaner shrimp
1 yellow tang
1 diamond watchman goby
5 bangaii cardinals or pajama cardinals
1 bicolor blenny
1 flame hawkfish

I plan on adding an anemone next year, and perhaps as I get more experienced in this section of aquarium fish, then I will got to fish that are more hard to take care of (bicolor angel and green mandarin). Are there any fish that would either outgrow my 100 gallon or fight with one another? Keep in mind that I have been doing aggressive and I'm brand new to reef. I'm also leaving the door open for corals eventually. Any suggestions ?

100 gallon FOWLR
10 gallon quarantine

Royal gramma are pretty aggressive and might pick on the other smaller fish like the firefish. Sometimes six line wrasse are aggressive as well, so watch out for that. I have heard mixed stories about kauderns cardinal fish fighting each other. Besides that, I think your stock is great, though you might be a little overstocked, but with small schooling fish you might be fine.

In general dottybacks are aggressive, so i would stay away from dottybacks unless you are going with an aggressive tank, which you are not going with. Also, stay away from damsels. They are pretty aggressive too.

Actually, I just saw that you want to get a mandarin. If you want a mandarin, stay away from wrasses. Wrasses will outfight mandarins for their natural food, copepods.

Chromic aren't aggressive. They are very fun to watch in groups.

Ok. So I think no mandarin cuz they are extremely hard to take care of according to liveaquaria, so I think I will go with the sixline wrasse, any other suggestions?

Actually, as long as you prepare for them correctly, they are not so difficult. If you want to keep one, seed the tank with copepods to begin with and a year later, there should be a colony of copepods that your mandarin could feed end that will keep reproducing. Or you can always add a refugium to keep copepods safe to breed. But that may be what you don't want.
