the angel.....she always bugs me to get a coral beauty......it's kinda funny, actually, she brings it up at least once a week. Of course, if I was gonna try it I'd have to get rid of my yellow tang.

So what do you think about this...

1 maroon clown
2 bar gobies
1 yellow tang
1 blenny - don't those come in purple/yellow bicolor?

Could I do 3 gobies with this list instead of 2?

you get about 11 inches of full grown fish.....that's gonna push it. 3 Gobies would be a bit much for sure. But I like your stock list!

I have to disagree with the Tang. He may be small now, but can reach (if you plan to have him long term) a full 8-9". Also, even a small tang need a lot of swimming room to thrive which a 55 gallon does not provide.
I know its an old argument, but I have seen too many post about YT aggression and diseases and I have to believe a smaller tank does help lead to stress which can bring potential problems.

Good luck Quarry Last time I told someone 4 tangs in a 90 was to much I became the "bad guy".
I would consider swapping one of the bar gobies for a firefish since the firefish will always stay out.

Its OK, I'll be the bad guy. If one person listens, thats one less dead tang.
This information is not just pulled out of the air. There is much evidence in this hobby to warrant the opinion.

Well it seems to be back and forth, back and forth.


I've heard you need to be cautious with angels but a Coral Beauty will not really mess with corals from user posts off google I've searched. What about the flame angels?

Its a crap shoot with these fish. Sometimes they are fine with a reef, other times its "belly up to the buffet".
Any Centropyge has the potential to be a coral picker. You can try one, but be prepared to catch them. Impossible to tell until you get them home.
