I recently did a 30 reef as well that worked out great. The only thing I would add is a Korlia or 2 for water circulation and slim down the stocking list a bit:

1 Coral Beauty
1 Clown
1 Blenny or consider a Royal Gramma (Sure are perdy)
1 Chromis

Chromis are terd machines and 5 might be a little much, plus they really don't have the room to stretch out in a small school like that. I don't like crabs of any kind with my corals--I just don't trust em I would also pass on the live sand and start with dry.
where's me money
