Hi guys. I'm working on getting a 180g reef set up (very slow going--I need to win the lottery
). I wanted to check with y'all on the stock list and stocking order.
Trio of Chalk Basslets
Carpenter Flasher Wrasse
Yellow Prawn Goby & Pistol Shrimp
Pair of Firefish
Blue Dot Jawfish
One Spot Foxface
Blue throat Trigger
The Hippo Tang and the Clown are the fish that I have to have -- they are what got me permission to put the tank together.
The Mandarin, I intend to get an ORA fish, plus the sump will have a refugium in it for pods
, and the tank will be over a year old by the time I get to it if I stick with my plan to add fish every month after a month's quarantine.
I am willing to risk the Flame Angel nipping at corals.
So what do y'all think? Will the order work, do I have too many, any conspecifics that I missed that'll cause problems, and are there any cautions you can think of that I may have missed in my research?
