Just out of curiosity, have you got a complete stock list together? I was wondering what all you were wanting to keep.

I don't have a full stocking list in place now. Still trying to make some decisions.

What we have now:
2 snowflake clowns
2 black percs
1 blue spot goby
1 sailfin tang
1 solaris wrasse
1 royal gramma

3 blood red shrimp
6 peppermint shrimp
1 porcelain crab
1 Sally lightfoot
And some various hermits and emeralds.

Plus the coral and bta

looks like a great start! I'm partial to the snowflakes myself, LOL, just not in the budget just yet.

Are you gonna add anymore tangs? I love tanks with tangs!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Another tang is one possibility we have discussed, but they take a lot of your stocking room so not sure.

Here is one possible stock list adding on what's there:
McCroskers flasher wrasse (1M-4F)
2-3 various fairy wrasse
Yellow watchman goby
Black combtooth blenny
Smaller tang

Other options I like
2 blue spot jawfish
ORA mandarin (worried about not eating prepaired and wrasse tend to pick at pods so this option is maybe still a no)

I'm open for suggestions really

Def jealous about the snowflakes! Lots of people say dont move the rocks... Its tough not to see your friends though so you make the call but if its found somewhere to be happy might be better for it.

i wouldn't be to concerned with the bio load of the tangs, they are hardy fish, its more the swimming room they require. with a good skimmer and a good fuge you should be fine.

i've seen heavily and i mean heavily stocked 90 gallons with 3 tangs and 15 other fish one beign the very difficult moorish idol

But every tank is different just because someone can do it doesn't mean everyone can.
