I agree about the flame. Caution needs to be exercised with them in a reef.

3 blue green chromis
2 occy clowns
2 bangaii cardinals
1 midas blenny
1 pink spot watchmen goby
2 firefish or 2 Bar gobies (im torn between the two)
and thatll be all.
one more question, would it be ok for me to introduce a chromis weekly for the next two weeks? or should i add the 2 to complete the trio at the same time?
and is there a way to sex firefish or are they all male like clowns then one changes?
TIA

Be careful on the Overload of your Tank size too many fish can be and issue, I know they are smaller fish but to many can be stressful I would say the most 8 if that... but depends if your doing Coral to.

the flame angel will limit what type of corals that you can put in the tank. Trust me, I learned from my mistake(a very expensive mistake). My bi-color angel terrorized my Acans, so much so that they closed up and eventually died. Two of my zoos also died from the angel nipping at them.

I would probably go with the firefish instead of the bag gobies. They are still in the goby family i believe but the body shape is different so it would probably help you avoid the possible problems of having three gobies in a tank.

I have found that no to tanks are the same. I would keep the stock list the way it is now. Start by adding your favorites first and once you get closer to the bottom of the list start adding fish very slowly. Maybe a couple months between fish. This will allow you to evaluate how fast your nitrates are rising and if you can keep them under control before add another fish.
