Oh not many fish! Haha do you consider it stocked? Does it have alot of swimming room for your fish? Just trying to see if a bannerfish would do ok

No I always stock low and have more coral, it's just the way I like to go about it, im sure you could have double the amount and still be ok.

Alright thanks! Did our stock list look ok? I think my bro posted it. We do not have our hearts set on a tang, and many people on here have said its a bad idea, but other people on differant forums think it would be ok. Would a small kole/bristletooth tang do ok in your tank?

I personally wouldn't put a tang in, I believe they need more lateral room. The way I look at it is what's the point in risking introducing ich just to have a tang?

Too many? Just the right amount?

4 peppermint shrimp
1 tiger pistol shrimp
1-2 fire shrimp (eventually)
1 emerald crab
1 brittle star

And i am going to buy a Cuc from reefcleaners, probably the 20-30 gallon tank package. They usually give you way more anyways
Here it is as of right now

I wouldn't bother with the angel. They look nice but may eat your coral and add another clown, I personally think they do better in pairs.

That's a bit of an oxymoron, no?

I also would not recommend a dragonet for a tank that does not have a refugium, regardless of how old the tank is. They graze just about constantly, and will quickly deplete a tank's pod population.

Here's an article about Heniochus. http://www.wetwebmedia.com/heniochu.htm

Hahaha it is. Should we not get one? Because we dont have the room for a trio. We heard they are not reef safe, is this true?

I think we will only get a mandarin if it eats prepared foods. It will be a challenge that we might take on when the tank is very established. We will leave room in te stock just in case!
