Stocking is done.
But you haven't mentioned about skimmer, light and pumps. Sump or no sump?

Oh, feed your fish a mix of brine and mysis shrimp and you should have no problem with having multiple carnivorous fish.

Ok thank you everyone for the advice...so helpful!

So the damsels are out. And if I feed plenty of brine and mysis shrimp, I can have both the hawkfish and the gramma? That is good news. Yes I definitely was thinking of adding the hawkfish last. The rest of the order is up in the air for now I guess...I am going to look into the other fish that were mentioned.

It seems like some people are hestitant about the bicolor angel. I did notice that his care level is "moderate" instead of beginner. Is that because he is a finicky eater? Anything else that's important to know about him? I did really want to get him...but if the general consensus is that he will be hard to care for I definitely don't want to kill him.

I am going to do a little bit more research and will probably come back with more questions. Thanks again.

For whatever reason I have personally had bad luck with angels, but a bi color or coral beauty should not be that hard to care for.

Ok here's my revision (added in this order)...
2 clownfish
royal gramma
3 blue reef chromis
bicolor angel
flame hawkfish

How does that look? It's not overstocked is it? It's about 35 inches of fish (at max full grown size possible). I wanted to also get a MoCoskers wrasse, but I'm pretty sure that would be overstocked. Your thoughts?

No thats a good stock, about stocked. The "inch per gallon" rule is terrible though. It really doesnt tell you anything, so dont use that

Without the Wrasse. Have you considered a goby of some sorts? Very small entertaining fish. I personally love gobies they are so cute and fun.
