Dang I miss my chalk bass...quick, active, and very colorful. To bad it isn't friendly with my dottyback. I would highly recommend this guy.

Wow, pistol shrimp look very cool. I had no idea they actually shot bubbles with their claw. Are they noisy? I might try a goby/shrimp combo.

I'd get the clown pair, and the flame angel should be your last fish added around the 6 month mark. They like to nip at the rocks and this allows your tank to grow some stuff for them and the param's to stabilize.

All the previous fish rec's are great.

I'd look into a flash wrasse as well. I think they have the best personalities. However make sure you have a mesh top with zero holes, or they will jump.

I'd steer clear of any other damsels besides the clowns, they are bullies!

Thanks for the additional info. I was told by a friend to get the clowns last. So I'm trying to figure out what is best to add first. Sounds like I will add the clowns before the flame angel. I will look into the flash wrasse.

Well we decided on a coral beauty and a purple dottyback as the first fish. I'm thinking I will eventually add a couple of clowns and a wrasse. The carpenter flasher looks really cool.

Will I be at stock or overstocked?

Final list I've planned (so far) is:

1 purple dottyback.
1 coral beauty.
2 clowns.
1 reef safe wrasse. Probably a carpenter flasher.

Thanks again for the suggestions.
