its a 55g with around 80 lbs of lr and 60lbs of live sand. eventually i want to add corals when my tank matures, i understand its better to do that about 6 months or so after your tank i setup, so i want fish that wont nip at corals any recommendations?

If you have asparations of doing a reef tank, stick with fish that are considered reef-safe from the begining as save yourself trouble down the road. You have lots of options...a small school of blue/green chromis, royal gramma, firefish, reef-safe wrasses, clowns, gobies, and others. In a 55 with 80lbs of LR you should be able to start with a pair of percula or ocellaris clowns with no problems. They are common and popular fish, but are a lot of fun to watch and add nice color to the tank.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
