Well you for sure should get a blenny and a goby of some kind.

I find them necessary in all my tanks! LOL

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

IMO, the first few fish should be damselfish. Either the Bluegreen Chromis or the Yellowtail Damsel.

Damsels can be quite territorial and even aggressive. Depends on the fish really. If you did want some I would put them in last so they do not terrorize your incoming fish.

Thats just my opinion though based on the infromation I hear here.

I don't think I'll put damsels in the tank since I have a three-stripe damsel in my biocube and he is aggressive and territorial plus I want to have all different fish in this tank

I have so many myself LOL. I like the midas blennys in particular, one is on my wishlist.
Depending on whether you want a sand sifting goby or not will determine which goby to get. I know the diamond back gobies are famous for their sand sifting BUT I also hear from alot of people who don't like their rocks and everything else covered with it. I have a pink spotted watchman who sifts absolutely zero sand and he's quite the cute guy. Watchman gobies or shrimp gobies also can pair up with pistol shrimp, but mine hasnt.

Just keep checking the websites and you'll find a perfect one I bet.

I like the orange spot. I believe that is one that can form a relationship with a pistol shrimp as well...

The tailspot is popular as he is so cute LOL
