You know, I'm wondering if that's why my foxface is stressed out all the time while the lights are off? I wonder if the damsels are bullying him? I have 2 yellow tail blue and 2 -3 stripe.

You think?

Sure they're not helping any.

Look fish up on places like liveaquaria.com or bluezooaquatics.com. Lots of good info on fish, tank size recommendations, compatibility, etc.

If you wanted to do wrasse and predators a dragon wrasse really has that look but they are not reef safe as they get bigger they will eat your inverts and they also move corals around looking for critters to eat

Everything sounds good, but the Blue Ribbon Eel is extremely difficult. I would not buy one unless I had seen it eat at a LFS. Getting them to eat is very difficult. Read up on them if you have not already.

Yeah I've been doing some reading . The LFS that said they will pick one up for me told me that they will get it at get it eating for me before I take it home. But it will be a little while before I add it. I have to get some more rock first. I'm going to put some PVC in under the substrate while I don't have a ton of rock in it.

With a tank that size I would go with the coral cat shark. Bamboo will get big fast and out grow that rank. A full grown coral is thinner and can get through right spaces better. I'd u get a shark do not add angels they will pick him to death and watch the puffer that could be rough as well. Tangs are fine but if you add any of the aggressive wrasse add them last. They are very territorial. My lunar harasses everything in the tank and I am about to get rid of him.
