Thanks it's finally stocked full. I have

2 clowns
1 purple tang
1 naso tang
1 purple firefish
1 six line wrasse
1 flame hawk fish
4 blue green chromis
1 flame angel
1 coral beauty

Do you think that's too many? Parameters are staying good so far, but I know all the fish will grow!

Might have issues with the flame and coral beauty...

Yeah I thought I might, but they come with the new tank I bought and the lady who owned them said they have got along for almost a year, and never bothered her corals so I thought I would give them a try. I have an aggressive 180 set up fowlr if they don't work out.

You do have to realize they can be aggressive and some kill all tankmates. Also if your attached to any fish i would reconsider. They can kill your fish with one bite. Anything else you would like to know you can ask here or pm me I will be glad to help.
When you feed pork chop clams and mussels, do you just put the whole thing in the tank?

I open the clams and put them in the tank on the half shelf. Mussels I feed the frozen cubes just thawed in tank water but i don't mush it up I just drop it while it's still cubed but soft. Whatever bits he shoots out his gills the other fish eat lol.

No wonder he didn't eat them, I just put them in whole, he eats about anything else though!
