stocking list

OK, Ammonia is like 3-2ppm, still no drastic drops over night that may tell me that I'm close to done. No surprise though, only has been a week

while deciding on light bulb combos, I'm also starting to dream about fish in my new tank.
my 30g is of course moving in too.
I currently have:
Mandarin gobby
Cleaner shrimp
Sally Lightfoot crab
Cinamon Tomato Clown
Sand shifting Starfish
CUC (Hermits and Snails)
I'm thinking about turning in the Tomato Clown because he is pretty aggressive and I don't want an aggressive tank.
Here is what I want in my 120 reef tank incl the above fishies minus TC:
1 Black Sailfin Blennie
2 B+W Clown Fish
1 Randall's Goby
1 Tiger pistol Shrimp
2-3 Wrasses
1 Kole Tang
Any oppinions on this?

Can I add an Emerald Crab and a second cleaner shrimp?
Will the Sally Light Foot or Emerald Crab harm my Pistol Shrimp?
Also, please read my Wrasse Thread so I know how to decide.

Please advice so I know what to plan and prepare for

BTW if anybody wants a Tomato Clown, he is ready for pick up!!!!

List looks good, I too am considering the black sailfin belnny, he is the coolest looking fish! I have a bunch of emeralds in my tank with a pistol and hteyve been fine. And yes, you can add some more cleaner shrimp for sure. I had 5 in my tank at one time.

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

Angry

ok, who wants to hear some bad news?!

Well, after my inital OMG-THE-LIGHT-FIXTURE-IS-HERE party and second investigation of the fixture I actually noticed some damage on it. ALSO, the acrylic screen it came with was TOTALY scratched.
Dunno how I could not have noticed it first, must have been TOO happy.

I'm kinda PO now, sent marinedepot.com an email with pictures attached and my bf called them (and they asked for pictures)

The fixture has scratches, dents etc.. it looks more refurbished and pre-used than brand-new
