Ok well I'll keep thinking about it, the flame would be last added so I have some time as I can only afford about 1 fish every couple weeks. So here's my new list
Pair of clowns
Purple fire fish
Royal gramma
Yellow watchmen goby & pistol shrimp
Flame angel OR kole tang OR square tail bristle tooth tang
Foxface lo
CUC to be decided

How does that sound?

Sounds good!! Personally, I would go with the kole tang. They're cool.

Oh I forgot one of my favorites...carpenter flasher wrasse. Would all those be ok? I read some where that wrasses need to be in groups. Does anyone have experience with that? If so do they need to be certain sexes? I know none of my lfs will have them sexed.

Wrasses don't need to be in groups. I have a carpenters flasher and he's fine by himself. He hangs out with all my other fish.

Foxface are fine in reef from what I've heard. They'll eat algae off of rocks too, and they are very cool to look at. kole tangs are just cool looking with the bright yellow eye and the stripes that have. They're kinda shy, though, so put him in early if you get one.

Good, so that's my list. I'm getting so excited. When should I add CUC and what should I start with and how many? I know I should add along the way as my tank gets more established, but how many and what to start with?


I rechecked my water parameters
Ammonia is still at .05
Ph 8.5
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10

I agree with mrc . Tangs is fun to watch and colorful . I made a mistake besides percula I also get a sabae clown where I have to give it to a friend coz its too aggresive and stressing my coral . Maybe you.cam get few.different kind.of tang . But try to.put them all.at same.time so.they wont fight each.other as long they different shape and color
