Alright so its actually a 75G. Were picking it up on monday to clean and set up. I just have a few questions about my stocking. Heres a list

Fish
1) Bicolor Angel
1) Koran Angel
1) Lawnmower Blenny
3) Green Chromis
1) Yellow Watchman Goby
1) Golden Head Sleeper Goby
1) Tiger Jawfish
1) Onespot FoxFish
1) Blue-eyed Tang
1) Yellow Tang

Inverts
1) Horseshoe Crab
2) Feather Duster
1) Pistol Shrimp
1) Scarlet Cleaner
1) Black Long-spined Urchin
20) Nassarius Snails
10) Cerith Snails
5) Turbo Snails
2) Fighting Conch Snails
5) Hermit Crabs
1) Sally lightfoot Crab

Questions..

I know its a bit overstocked, but I was generous when picking the stock because I want to narrow it down. All these fish are compatible. So...

What order should I into each fish/invert?
For inverts, how long do I have to wait for invert x?
How long should I wait for sea stars?
Anything I should add/remove?

you might have a mini cycle from the move so make sure not to put the fish in right away. Get some testing kits and definitely wait. I would also suggest getting a ro/di unit for the water, tap water usually has a lot of gunk in it thats bad for the tank. We almost had our tank crash when we moved since our new tap water has very high alkalinity. I'd start off with some cuc...a few snails maybe a couple hermits. Also whats invert x? The magarita snails live in colder water and will eventually just die off in your tank.. id skip getting those alltogether. Starfish need a established tank to survive, I havent been able to keep one alive yet! My tank is now just over a year old and i was thinking about trying to get a starfish again...make sure to research them to ensure they will eat debris and dropped food

Thanks for the reply man. I will skip the marg snails. And I heard starfish need about a year to go into a tank, but I was just wondering if all are like that. Im definitely going to wait and let it cycle because I have to clean the tank and the LR so im have no choice but Id rather do it that way. "Invert x" is just a way of me saying any invert.

ohhh haha i thought invert x was some sort of additive lol oops!
ya i heard about a year too so hopefully my next one lives. I bet you could get a sand sifting star fish..I've read that they will eat any food in the sand and you can always put some food in the sand if he isn't getting enough. They are not very colorful and exciting though...but they will keep the sand stirred up and therefore looking nicer.

when you use bleach when cleaning the tank only use a small amount like one to two cap fulls. no more. just rise real well let dry for 24 to 48 hrs. after that you should be ok to set it up. never mind didn't get to th second page
