Yes, one small bit of advice, take it or leave it..... Unless you are absolutely, positively, 100 percent SURE that you're going to leave it a FOWLR, stick with reef safe fish. I've seen it happen many times where a FOWLR is set up, then someone gets the idea of "maybe I'll try an easy low-light soft coral", only to realize they need to get a certain non-reef safe fish out to do so, and winds up tearing their tank apart in the process just to get that one little bastard out.....

I second the wrasse idea.. I've always preferred mystery and Christmas wrasses personally.. Chevron tangs are nice if you can find them.. Given any thoughts to inverts??

Oh, and as for CUC, I strongly recommend zebra hermits.. Don't get too big, not aggressive, and pretty cheap..

If you're gonna get non reef safe fish a cuc will not last long. I'd probably get. Long nose hawkfish for that tank.

You'll definitely love the foxface be careful not to touch the spines underneath his stomach/ on his back because they are poisonous, but you shouldn't have any problems with this.

I have a reef tank so I don't know a lot of non-reef safe fish but i personally love tangs like the yellow tank or kole tank! I also love lyretail anthias, they are beautiful fish and they school too! On the non-reef safe side eels are really cool and lionfish would be cool too.
