Stocking List

Here is my shot at a stocking list for a 75 gallon tank.

x3 Red Striped Goby (Trimma cana)
Clown Goby, Yellow (Gobiodon okinawae)
Carberryi Anthias (Nemanthias carberryi)
McCosker's Flasher Wrasse (Paracheilinus mccoskeri)
Tanaka's Pygmy Wrasse (Wetmorella tanakai)
Diamond Watchman Goby (Valenciennea puellaris)
Flame Angelfish (Centropyge loriculus)
Lemonpeel Angelfish (Centropyge flavissima)
White Tail Bristletooth Tang (Ctenochaetus flavicauda)
Spotted Mandarin (Synchiropus picturatus)

I was wondering if anyone had any comments about the fish in the list, I've run the list by snorvich and gotten his okay so I know it's doable.

Looks good, but what else do you plan to keep? The small angels may pick at certain lps you want to try like brains etc.....

the clown gobies often pick at and lay on & irratate SPS, unless you plan to have a bunch or none then shouldn't be an issue.

Mandarian, definitly wait til the tank has been established 6mos+. Do you plan a refugium?

I left a few parts out of my stocking list, I plan on mostly keep corals like frog spawn/hammer/torch and some zoas. I am not a huge fan of the SPS and I am planning on setting up another smaller tank elsewhere in my house so i can put some LPS in there if I want.

I do plan to have a refugium, I am either going to do a 40 gallon sump/refugium or have a standalone 40 gallon refugium.

Thanks for the inputs.

I would add the angels together and toward the end of the stocking.

Good luck!

Okay, will it help them get along better to do that?

I was thinking of adding them second to last with only the tang coming after. Should I do the mandarin before the angels? I know I need copepods first.

mandarain will be fine later on. But make sure well established otherwise it will more than likely persish. Unless you can find one eating prepared foods at a LFS. Unlikely tho.

cool, thanks for the advice, I will definitely wait until I am established, I don't have the time to keep a mandarin fed.
