Alright so this'll be my first reef tank, well any sort of saltwater tank. I've been keeping freshwater tanks for some time now and I want to try something more challenging. Plus saltwater seems a bit more appealing to me as well. I've been doing lots of research and watching many of the Marine Depot and BRS info vids on setting and keeping a reef tank and how to stock it as well. I've been interested for the past year but finally got around to planning a tank out.

I'd appreciate help with figuring a stocking list out too. Just fish I'm interested in.

Then Have the Two Little Fishies phosban hanging on the back. The heater should also fit in with these too until the sump is installed. The return pump that comes with the tank will be replaced with the Sicce Syncra. Then the pump that comes with the phosban reactor will connect to the reactor then reactor to the other return nozzle. Save some space I figured. Once I have 2-3 fish I'll buy and instal the sump under the tank in the stand which seems like itll fit and the ATO might fit under there as well. The overflow should fit in the equipment area of the tank once I pull the "old" skimmer out and heater. The sump will have a refugium and a 50 gallon rated protein skimmer in the skimmer section and also in that section I'll possibly add another carbon reactor or upgrade to a bigger one for this area. Since the overflow is rated for 300 gph there should be any worry of flooding with the 251 gph return pump. My uncle will help me with the sump plumbing. On the stocking I found fish I like and I've seen recommended for nano or tanks this size on this forum and many other forums. I know about not keeping 2 identical gobies, or 2 identical blennies and even identical gobies and blennies together. I know in some instances some blennies can b e kept together and the same with gobies. The inverts are the a cleaning crew but I don't want too many cause if algae gets eradicated in the tank then I'll have to worry about them eating. Plus I can always clean algae myself as well. The corals I listed are corals I've seen recommended for beginners, I like, and/ or believe I would be able to get them to thrive. But any help I could get with the stocking would be greatly appreciated.
