Some fish are not invert friendly. be sure to check before adding any. I have a flame hawk who apparently likes to much on shrimp and I have some fish that are eating my hermits, just not sure which fish is the guilty party. lol

Liveaquaria will give you details about each fish you are interested in so you can plan ahead.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Only get them if you like them.
I don't have a CUC per say. My Flame Angel, Blueface Angel and 2 Tangs seem to keep my algae under control. I have some green on the decor, but I don't have the hair algae problems. I also realize it takes a big aquarium to house those fish, so it's not a good option for everyone.
