Kinda hard to read all squished together with no spaces, but I think I'm counting 21 fish total? And some of them get pretty good sized when full grown. IMO, that's pushing the stock a little bit. But that's just me. BTW, SUCKS that you lost your iPod!! Hope you find it!

i can post while im not at home.
A Foxface Lo
leopard wrasse
engineer goby
blue green chromis x7+
Bangaii cardinal x3+
yellow tang
bicolor blenny
chalk bass
flame/coral beauty angel

all added to my firefish, scooter blenny, yellow watchman, and true perc....
its 21 fish but i count all but 6 as nano or close to nano. I would be willing to get rid of the chalk bass but would perfer to keep everything else if at all possible. any input?

any of these fish i should not get for a certain reason? ive been researching it and it seems like it should all work out fine. its a 90 gallon with like a 20 gallon built in sump. 100lbs sand, 125lbs LR, and a remora aquaC skimmer rated for 180 gallons.

I could probably drop the tang, angel and bass. but will that be good enough? the next thing i would cut is the engineer goby but i really want that and all the others. idk how to cut down the bangaii and the chromis.

I heard bangaii's do better in groups of 3 so they can find a mate. and i heard chromis do better as pairs or a group of over 6.

Lol wow dude your stock is looking alot like mine!! Haha well i cant have that many fish in my tank... But you have my main ones on there! :p people should know that most engineer gobys are found at the size of your pinkey... And it takes a while for them to reach full size. I only like them when they are full size. Haha

30 fish is just insane. Haha not a good example. Drop the angel, tang, and bass for sure.... Then maybe get rid of a few chromis. Repost the stock list and we will see how it stands
