Lol, its coming along. We have created it though, mainly to keep everyone updated on new purchases and additions! We are new, too. Therefore, we have lots of questions!!

IMO, I would say yes. I think any of your fish on your list would be fine. If you wanted to be really safe you could always go in order of the amount of aggression.

Cool!! We will have to earn some money though, we were looking at a new light fixture!

And which on the list would be the next most peaceful? I dont want to add the cardinal yet, as were not dure about him.

Could we replace the cardinal with a chalk bass and get that? Or maybe get the goby/shrimp pair?
