You might want to get bigger shrimp than the sexy shrimp and bumblebees. BUT the coral banded can go after other shrimp. :-(

I would look at the fire shrimp, cleaners and peppermints.

The fish stock seems ok. You might be getting to your limit soon though. A couple of anthias in my opinion will put you at stocked.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Alright I may lessen my number of the Chromis and the cardinals because I want more variety. Does this sound ok?
