30 gallon stock questions?

Since I starting cycling my new tank I was set on it being a reef tank however I have been looking into it and all the USB that I really like the look of seem to not be completely reef safe so I am now having second thoughts. The fish I really like the look of are sleeper gobies six line wrasse coral beauty Valentini puffer yellow long nose butterfly plus the 2 clowns from my old tank so I am now considering a fish only with live rock, however with those fish I hear some pik at shrimps hermits and snails what do people use for cuc in these sort of tanks? Also anyone see issues with the stock I want (bar the butterfly and fox face know the tanks too small so one day)?

You're right the tank is too small for a butterfly and fox face. It is also too small for the puffer and probably even the coral beauty. In a tank that size, I would do reef.

The coral beauty would be fine in a 30g. It's a dwarf angel. I have a half black angel in my 30g, and he's perfectly happy.

live aquaria reccomends a 70 for most dwarf angels. i know they can be off but i would still think a little bigger than 30. could be wrong though.

70 is for full sized Angels. 30 is fine for most dwarf angels and the Valentini puffer is fine in a 30.

use it as a general guide then say if you decided to do eels then research the eel you want

always do your homework no matter how sure you are it can not hurt
