Aragonite sand. Enough for a sand bed 2-3 inches because I want a gold headed sleeper goby.
That goby likes to sift sand through its mouth and gills. So a nice sand bed will be a good thing. A refugium is suggested because it will help keep up a good population of Copepods and ampipods for the goby to eat.

Also having a lighted refugium will help reduce any ph swings that might occur at night when the display tanks lights are turned off.

I don't know from experience but I've heard the copper banded butterfly can be hard to feed. Hopefully someone else has better input than me.

My arrow crab was very aggressive. Medium sized in a 75 gal. He ate my shrimp and even got a hold of one of my clownfish. I took him back and will never buy another one lol. Could have just been mine though

It wasn't just yours. They are really cool, but a real pain. Don't suggest them unless there are no other shrimp or corals IMO.

Wrong:
Copperband butterfly
(dottybacks are agressive)
Sweetlips
Bellus angel
French angel
Pretty much all butterfly fish are bad... Very hard to keep alive.
No tangs except maybe a tiny kole or bristletooth

Have a look on live aquaria, they tell you everything you need to know about specific fish, including food, size tank etc etc

Which one is a tang? I edited the list by the way. And just so everyone knows, its going to take a long time to get everything for the the tank- if it happens

Yellow tank, blue tang, etc. "dori" from finding nemo is a tang and needs a 6 foot long 180 gallon+ tank when fully grown. go to liveaquaria.com an do some research. If it says the minimum tank size is over 66 gallons you cant have it! I have the red sea max 250 like you (of you are considering)

Fire shrimp! http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...697&pcatid=697

And bumble bee snails.
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...55&pcatid=1355

Those are on my wish list anyway. Unfortunately I was told I have to be able to keep the fish alive in my freshwater tank before I can do saltwater. I think my husband has a good point even though fresh and salt are completely different. LOL
