Idea for first saltwater tank (again)

This time I'm looking at a Coral Beauty pygmy angel, a Red Fireflash gobie, and a Diadema Psuedochromis. This seems like it would be kind of bare so if you have any ideas for hardy fish that will leave inverts alone let me know.

For my inverts I'm looking at 2 cleaner shrimp and an algee pack from Live fish delivery.

This will be a fifty five gal. with no corals, just live rock.

clowns would be nice for that tank, they do well in newer tanks...the maroons are very attractive, as are the others

keep in mind some fish do not fare well in newer tanks; the coral beauty (or any angel) should be placed only in a mature tank of 3+ months

have fun & read up, also find a lfs that keeps good healthy stock!

srgetz, I'm aware of that, I'll treat it the same way I do discus. I'm not a big fan of clown fish. Maybe a longnose hawkfish if I got rid of the cleaner shrimp. How much do cleaner shrimp go for, usualy?

Well, i do like the royal gramma. Maybe a green or gold chromis pair? Damsels are also hardy.

Oh, and 15-18 dollars for the shrimp.

Should you have fish before you get a cleaner shrimp. I'd really love one, but haven't gotten any fish yet. Soon, though. Veerrrryy soon....

I just bought The Complete Book of the Marine Aquarium so I shouldn't need to ask too many more questions.
