    Hi Fishlore! I have a currently cycling 55 gallon saltwater FOWLR tank and I need some input on fish to put in it. I am planning to have 3 green chomis, 2 firefish, 2 picasso clownfish, one six line wrasse, one red blood shrimp, and a coral beauty or flame angelfish. Keep in mind that I am a beginner and do you think these are good, hardy, nonaggressive (other than angelfish) fish to get? Please post your input and any comments you have down below.

    I have almost the same stock minus the chomis and wrasse. My Clowns where the first thing I added and my Flame was the last. So I would go Chomis,firefish(make sure you have a tight fitting lid they like to jump), Clowns, wrasse, and than angel for the best results. And remimber the big of the two clowns will be your female so buy one big and one small or if you can get a proven pair that would be even better:).

    Your set up sounds similar to what I have as well. I started off with my three chromis (Larry, Curly and Moe) and I let them hang out for about 2 weeks before I added my 2 clowns, then a week later I added my firefish, and a week after that I added my bangaii. I am getting a 6 line wrasse as well. Definately add the angel last;) the little busy bodies. your plan sounds solid. Make sure you have your Clean Up Crew in place too. I have 13 hermit crabs, cleaner shimp and a couple snails too. I actually added half the crew before I added the chromis and the other half of my crew after I added a few other fish.
