That sounds like it will do okay in your tank... but you would want to get a small yellow and blue tang... and upgrade your tank once they get bigger... They will survive in your tank, but for those two fish to be happy the really need 6' or more to swim...

ok i just kind of worry about my moorish idol everyone says they cant kkeep them alive and i had mine in my mothers tank for 6 months worried about the move and dont want to stress him out with over crowding maybe i will leave out the tangs too to be safe and just go with 2 clown, long yellownose butterfly, moorish idol and my two mandarins i know the mandarins dont fit the nemo profile but my mother wants me to take my 3 fish so she can get some new fishies
