stocking a 33gal

Are the following fish do-able in a 33gal with lots of protein skimming, filtration, and live rock and sand?
2 perc clowns
1 royal gramma
1 longnose hawkfish
1 yellow watchman
1 flame angel or coral beauty

That seems like alot of fish for a 33g tank. I'd probably skip the hawkfish. The others may be ok with good tank maintenance.

I agree with Fluff...a would loose the hawkfish as well. The others are doable but you will have to keep a constant eye on water parameters.

I think skipping the hawk and keeping the rest of the list is gonna put you a max, if not a bit over on your bioload. Adding a few cardinals probably wouldn't be a good idea IMO.

would the the other five minus the hawkfish bother inverts like crabs and shrimp?

No. The other five are safe with shrimp and crabs.

would you recommend flame or coral beauty for ease of care and safety with inverts?

Either one really. The coral beauty is cheaper but the flame is flashier. Both are beautiful in my opinion. And both would be about the same as far as care. Neither will bother mobile inverts. Many people keep these fish in reefs without a problem but they are angels so there is always a chance they may nip at corals.

Thanks-leaning towards the flame for colour. Any way to get a little blue colour in the tank by substituting one of the others?
