Also do blue-green chromis have to be kept in a school, or is 2 of them sufficient?

2 chromis will work. I have only 2 in my tank and they're fine but IMO they'd be better off with at least 3 of them in there. Which is what I would've done if I had a bigger tank.

I have a mix of 40 turbo snails. 25 Astraea snails. 25 margarita snails. 20 turban snails. 20 cerith snails. 70 hermit crabs 50 dwarf zebra hermit crabs. 1 6 inch African red star fish and 1 4 inch sand sifting starfish. 1000 gallon tank. Not sure the ratio in mine is high or low but it seems to work really well.

Definately go with a yellow watchman goby and IMO every saltwater tank should have a Royal Gramma!

I have some knowledge about tangs but I just wanna see what you guys know about them..I'm pretty sure you can only have one in the tank right? Cuz they will fight? Also is it the same deal if I put different types of tangs in the same tank? It's a 55g tank

I wouldn't really recommend any tangs in a tank that size as they grow big.

Stick to smaller fish or dwarf angels. Lemon peels are nice but nip at soft corals. Fire angels are stunning.

I know I would need a bigger tank I'm trying to get one in the future but I just wanted to know if like say a powder blue tang would get along with a yellow tang

Powder blue's can be aggressive towards any tang especially ones of similar appearance. They are also considered a 'difficult to keep fish'.

Do some research on tangs and other fish before you decide.
