set up and fish list?

my tank is 100 gal, and 40" by 24" by 28", with about a 60 litre sumo, with some filter ppads in their. There is also a deltec apf 600 skimmer run by aqua bee 2000 and a deltec 509 fluidised bed full of rowaohos run by aqua bee 500. There are two heaters one a 300 w and the other a 150w. There is a deltec hlp 4040 as a returnthat moves around 4000l/h, to the hole in the bottom of the tank. The weirs are two corner ones that are only up at the surface, and all the piping is 1 1/2".

at the moment circulation in the tank is by a tunze 6000 stream pump which moves around 7000l/h and a or1200 on a closed loop system. and the tunze is turned off at night one hour after actinics are turned off. i plan to have two of the unze with the syestm so is controlled and lower the power at night and work as a wave maker.

the lighting is by a single 250 watt metal halide with two actinics, that is 70cm long, by arcadia, which is on for 10 hours a day, with the actinics on for 12 ours, also i have a small blue actinc that i use as a moon lamp, that is on when the metal halide os off.

i have got about 60kg of live roch and lots of polps and mushrooms, that i got second hand.

i plan to have a variety of hard and soft corals, including a aneneome and a clam.

the fish i would like to have in the tank, are two common clowns, a regal tang, a yellow tang, and 5 green chromis, and maybe 3 wreckfish?

does this sound okay?

That sounds good. You might want to go with just one tang for a 100 gal tank. I cant comment on the wreckfish as I dont know what they are.

wreckfish are anthias squamipinnis, they are a yellow, oragnge, red colour., with some purple behind the eye.

oh i thought the two tangs would be okay together as they are so different and if i add the regal first it will get its bit, as yellows are alot more territorial, or so im told, and harder to get when young.
