Fish Wish (list)

I was thinking of what fish to get, I went to my LFS and went to make a list of fishes, and contingents fishes for my 55gal tank.
Fish
1. 2 canary/yellow wrasses or 1 small basslett.
2. 1-2 false percula clownfish.
3. 1 dwarf angel either flame angel, or coral beauty.
4. juvenile Mimic or Yellow tang.
5. Watchman goby, or other docile goby or blenny.

Inverts
1. 20 tubo snails.
2. 2 scarlet hermits or 1 brittle star.
3. Brittle star.
4. Cleaner shrimp.
5. zoo's? 6-months
6. toadstool coral? 8-12 months

On the fish, I'd suggest farm raised for the perc. Much friendlier. Think about a pistol shrimp for your watchman or other shrimp goby. Gotta make sure your rock is firmly planted if yu did the pistol. They tunnel and could cause the rocks to fall otherwise.

On the Inverts, you can probably do more hermits AND the brittle. Don't get the green. I hear they can get nasty when they get big. I got a grey one which is very docile. Or, look at some of the nice, smaller serpents - although you might not see'm much. I'd suggest 3 cleaner shrimp. They seem to do better in numbers and come out more.

Not sure about the angel and your coral aspirations. A buddy has told me that the dwarf angels are reef friendly. Other says no angel is guaranteed reef safe. How 'bout some 'shrooms?

Good luck.

remember where you are saltynewb. This is a public place. Many of our members are youngsters.

anyways, back to the topic:

Your list looks good, but I would go with about a dozen to 20 tiny blue leg hermits for the best results.also, add the clowns first, and the angel last. This should help keep the angel docile enough. I know nothing about wrasses so I can't help you there. ANd I would maybe consider a couple of Coral banded shrimp. they look awsome and are very fun to watch in pairs.
