The best resource I've found online is at Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums They have like every fish you could imagine with their tank sizes, dietary concerns and other useful info.

take a peek at that site and you'll find a dozen other fish you can have lol. Then you get to make a whole new list up!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If the cardinal get near the maroons territory, the maroon my chase him off, that doesn't mean he would nip his fins, but it is a possibility.

So does this sound feasible? Adding the fish in this order:

55 gallon tank fish only, no coral

Yellow angelfish
Kaudern's Cardinal
Maroon Clown
Bicolor dottyback

I would add the cardinal first because it looks like the least aggressive.

Awesome. Thanks everyone. I'm sure I'll be posting in the near future with all kinds of questions about filters, cycles, bacteria and things of those sorts. I'll be sure to do lots of research first.

Thanks again

sorry, one more quick question. Is it safe to start with two fish, or always best to just do one at a time?

With my first saltwater I started with two. I think one or two will be fine!
