Hi there! Congrats on a great deal! I know the setups are extremely pricey down under so you got a great deal!

If I do my math correctly it's about 60 US gallons which gives you a lot of options. No tangs or anythign like that but still alot of fish and inverts will be quite happy in there.

I knwo they don't ship to AUS but have you checked out Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums They have a stupendous selection of corals, fish and inverts that can help give you some ideas. Also states whether things are reef safe and what other requirements the fish/invert/coral may have.

Good luck!! And btw, we LOVE pictures here so share some soon! LOL

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

But not sure if they are reef safe

Both Flames and Corals are considered "With Caution" for reefs. On this forum and many others it seems that there are "Model Citizens" that never even nip, and there are "Devil fish" that ruin $1000's in corals in one night.
