I would probably work around 2 clownfish; watchmen goby; The cardinals look nice however would they be compatible? From the site I'm looking at they are semi-aggressive. Also the sailfin/algae blenny are rather interesting. I would rather not risk end up a lionfish having a tasty snack which would end up costing me a pretty penny. Down the road I will be upgrading to a bigger tank; but that's a ways away.

Clown fish
Watchmen Goby
Cardinal (depending on compatibility?)
Butterflied might not be bad either considering I didn't realize they would fit my aquarium.

Thats a start atleast.

That might be a good mix. You have the clowns that like to "wonder/host", the blenny, that would hang out on the bottom, and the goby that is "mid tank/perching" type fish...I would still add the clowns at the end....let the other critters find their spots and then add the clowns. Remember, not all clowns are super bad...lol. I like gold stripe maroons (pretty nasty), but have 2 no bar clowns (hybrids) and only a Tangaroa Goby (Ctenogobiops tangaroai) to compliment my pistol shrimp (another favorite of mine), in my 55. I'm still trying to decide if I want to add another fish, but those clowns hog up all of my attention right now.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Triggers and/or lions will be a problem for CUC. Triggers love chewing on the shells. Keeps their teeth sharp.

So; today i went and bought an oak stand which was on sale with cabinet doors for 99.97 with tax came to about 106. I original plan was to buy a 55 gallon kit; which came with hood and everything however now that I was looking; they have their 90 gallon tanks on sale for $150. I have decided I will be buying a 90 gallon tank instead of a 55. Only problem is; I really do not feel like spending $180 on a hood lol. Unfortunately I might have to. The dimensions of the tank are 48x18x21 I believe. Those are really close to the correct dimensions. I have been looking online at hoods and see them as cheap as $78; so might end up just ordering online.

So now hopefully I can get the trigger I wanted; waiting to hear other comments about that. How would I effectively filter this tank without a CUC? Do I need a sump? If so I will do so; I have this 15 gallon tank sitting here which isn't doing much at all. The local Lowes here has 12x12 sheets of glass which I can put right in there; they will also cut it down to certain sizes if required. That will be nice to to have considering I can stick all my ugly crap (heaters; skimmer) down there.
