Yes please don't. Yes you could put 7 in but the question then becomes how long will they last and what kind of lasting effect will it have on your tank. It is best to cut down the stocking list it will save the fish from stressing and dying. It will save u from learning the hard way and it will save u money as well cuz u won't have to replace part of the fish ya lost

Fish list looks reasonable, well, for you anyway. LOL

I would wait for a starfish until your tank has matured more. They very pften die. :-(

No idea about the reef lobster though, sorry....

Then your not going to be able to get a lobster...

Caution must be taken when incorporating into a reef aquarium, as it may harm small fish and invertebrates. - from Liveaquria.com

new stocking plan looks like this
2 clowns and gramma
purple firefish
yellow watchman goby
longnose hawkfish (reef safe??)
TONS, I MEAN TONS of corals
a few more snails
the reef lobster
i figure the lobster is a good replacement for that nonexistant center piece fish
