That is a total of nine fish.... Most of which are small. Is that too many? Also getting a small cuc.
Any other thoughts on this stocking?

Its certainly hard to know what you have until it is too late! Unless you're willing to replace them lol.

PS your tank is awesome!

Hey big banker I'm tagging along. I too just started a 55 FOWLR and just bought my live stock online. I should be receiving them on Tuesday. My line up is.....

1 coral beauty
6 green chromis
3 domino damsels

Also not sure if this is too many.

Damsels can be aggressive

I spoke with the owner of my lfs.... the only fish that he always carries in stock are the clowns and firefish. Everything else is a rotating stock of high priced exotics outside of your basics.

He is also going to give me 20lbs of live rock for free because I'm buying 100lbs of base rock from him.

He also mentioned the lemonpeel is not very hardy

Quick issue... Went to order my Odyssea fixture and they were out of stock of the "marine" ones! If I order the "plant" fixture and change the bulbs will that be okay?
