my fish list, your suggestions/overstocked?

Hey guys, I'm quite the regular at starting new threads here lol. I'm over 6 months in now and I've slowly been restocking and I'm about to the point where I have all of the fish I want!

The tank is a 55 gallon and I have:

3 green chromis
2 black and white clownfish
1 bicolor dottyback
1 sixline wrasse

And I was thinking of adding a large coral beauty to finish it off.

Do you guys find that an appropiate stocking list? Your thoughts on it? Will that be overstocking?

I would also like to get a clown goby and (i know, i'm probably really pushing it here.. a yellow eye kole tang (tang police aware lol))

Would you stop at the coral beauty, or could I get away with adding the clown goby and/or yellow eye kole tang too?

First tank and I kinda want to get everything lol

I personally think you could add the angel, but the sixline and/or dottyback may be aggressive towards the clown goby. I'm not sure, but I think it is a good possibility because those two are pretty aggressive fish. I hear the Kole will need a 75g as a minimum tank though.

I think the clown goby and coral beauty would be ok. Just know that clown goby are really tiny lol. As far as the tang, idk.

Thanks for that. Yeah I hadn't thought of that!
And yeah I know about the 70 gal min.. but I figured I have an 18 gallon sump so I'm pretty close to that not in swimming space but in total water.. it's kind of just a wish

Lol I know, I've seen one. They are so cute though! I really think the wrasse would pick on it.. he's already chasing around the dottyback.. but they both go in and out of the rocks so there is plenty of space.

I'll probably just finish with adding the coral beauty! I'm excited.. buttt

I think I will need another tank in the future for a kole tang and clown goby

The clown goby is really really tiny as mentioned. And the Kpole tang should be on your next tank upgrade list, not this one. :-( Youa re getting kinda full already adn the Kole does need his space.

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

Thanks carey!

Okay so I think I'll just finish up with a coral beauty. That would give me 25" of adult fish.

Check it out carey, I'm really doing it now it's been a long venture

The coral beauty will look great! I love dwarf angels, they remind me of tangs, because they are colorful and active, but can be kept in smaller tanks.

Found my sixline wrasse behind the tank today. Are these fish known to be jumpers or should I assume it's the cat?
