37 gal needs fish!

So Im getting a 37 gallon reef setup, already have plans to add a pec clown+host and a lawnmower blenny. I got room for maybe 3 more fish, any suggestions? Some colorful fish that aren't to hard to take care of would be nice. Thanks!

not so sure a lm blenny can be supported in a tank that small. What are the equipment specifics of this set up?

Agreed. I'd replace the lawnmower with a bi-color maybe. The LM blenny gets to about 5".

Yeah, Lanmower blennies need lots of algae, and from what I have heard, usually do not readily accept algae sheets. For fish, I would go with a coral beauty and some type of firefish.

Queen Conch's get pretty big, you might want to leave that one off your list. I am not sure if the two shrimp will be ok, that is a question for someone else. The rest looks fine although I would say at that point, you are certainly maxed out in the fish department.(maybe a bit overstocked)

I had a pygmy angel once and much prefer my coral beauty now for color and activity. The pygmy is a caribean fish also if that matters to you since the other choices you made are pacific based. Both are siad to be reef safe, but I have heard it can be hit or miss.

I would not rule out a clown goby either I personally liked the green clown for coloration.

saltwaterfish.com aquacultured queens that only get 1 inch

http://www.saltwaterfish.com/site_11...49a342d101c23b

Same with the fighting conch

And about the maxed out, this would be the final setup that im visioning. I would say that the small pgymy angel would be the very last thing added once everything and its a little more matured.
