Butterflies need a 70g, most need even bigger. The four spot needs a 120g. These fish need to swim A LOT, and a 30g isn't even close to meeting that need. I know they're beautiful, and I understand wanting to have one. I want one too, but don't have one because it would be cruel to the fish because I only have a 30g and 55g. Check out liveaquaria.com in the nano SW fish section and there are colorful options listed there. With a small tank like a 30g, the fish are going to be smaller. But that doesn't mean they're not pretty. Check out that site and you'll see some pretty options.

I'm looking at :

Long nose hawk fish
A pair I wild neon blue gobies
An algae blenny
And a Catalina goby

They all fit and I was thinking an engineer goby I saw one at the lfs and he looked like an eel . So I kinda want him but minmum tank size is 55 .

Oh ya and also a mandarin not sure if I want a blue or a spotted? The spotted are smaller at my lfs

Dwarf angels are hit or miss in regards to eating coral. I had a different type of dwarf angel that ate just about every type of coral. But there are other people whose angels haven't touched a coral. It just depends on the individual fish, actually. 50/50 chance. Are you a betting man? Haha.

Fox face -no
Long nose butterfly- no
Yellow tang- no
And my fav a green mandarin- and no.

You will stress all those larger fish to death in a short time, and you will starve the mandarin, refugium or not.

A 2 gallon tank full of pods will last about a week, maybe. They are constantly eating, and are definitely not for small tanks. People used to say 1 mandarin for every 100 pounds of live rock.
