2 clowns, 2 chromis, 2 anthias?
I'd say you could add another 2-3 fish.

List looks good, just missing a goby. A nice addition to the lower half of the tank. The anthias and chromis will be mid tank fish and very active, same with the midas blenny.

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

You could add 2 clown gobies or a watchman goby and a pistol shrimp pair.

I prefer the bicolor dottyback to the royal gramma (note, there is an R in the name).

Good list for that tank. Is the sand in yet?

Not yet. It shipped this morning via priority mail so I ought to get it Wednesday.

I picked up a float gauge to install in my reservoir tank so I dont have to look in the little hole to know when I am close to full. Will install that tonight. Also picked up some small diameter PVC so I can raise the output of my ATO aquadoser above the level of the reservoir tank to prevent any chance of siphoning.

I also picked up a small work light and some 6500k CFLs to put over the fuge. Cheaper than replacing the bulb in my PC fixture (they wanted $17 for shipping PLUS $25 for the bulb!).

Tomorrow after work I plan on heading down to my LFS and picking up a few small pieces of cured live rock to seed the rest and speed the cycle. I also need to find more rubble to put in my fuge. Very little came with my base rock shipment a he wrapped each piece in bubble wrap before shipping...

Personally I'd avoid the rubble in the fuge - I always place my rubble in the sump portion. Other wise, you're provide a spot for accumulation of dead macro algae which will break down, possibly causing some nutrient issues. For the fuge, I'd either go straight sand or BB.
