can't get the pics for now. I was reading a thread on the fish selection ( by Pasfur), and in which order should I add my fish.

I'm at
1. clean up crew
2. clowns
3. goby pair
4. royal gramma/firefish
5. banggai cardinalfishes

is this good?

I would say this is good; the royal gramma and the clowns are probably the most aggressive on this list. I would add the CUC, (is goby pair=shrimp/goby pair, or pair of gobies? and what kind?) goby, banggais, clowns and then the gramma.

I agree with Wake. Also, make sure to give that Gramma a good 3 weeks minimum in Q. They are very ich prone, but very hardy after acclimation to the display.

It is a goby with a shrimp. What size Q. tank should I use? How long should a Q. period on my other fish be? Pasfur would a six-line wrasse be an acceptable in this size of tank, if I drop the gramma?

A six-line will be extremely aggressive in a tank this small. I had trouble with one in a 46 gallon tank. He chased out a fairy wrasse, a firefish, and was overall just mean to everyone else. This is a Reef-friendly fish, but unfortunately just not a fish-friendly fish. I would put this fish either alone in a 30 gallon to 65 gallon, or in an aggressive tank over 46 gallons, or in a tank over 125 gallons with peaceful fish.

I agree 100%. The Six Line Wrasse in my 54 reef is an absolute terror.

I'm going to take that as a no.

So moving on what size Quarantine do I use.
How long do I use it on just any fish.

I like a minimum of a 10 gallon Q. I keep all fish in Q for a minimum of 3 weeks, with 4 being more often than not. I really observe the fish for the last week or 2, and want to see it become very confident and eager to feed prior to placing it into the display.

So with my tank stocking. Would a 10 gallon be good. Do the banggais need to be seperated?

A 10 gallon is fine for most fish in display tanks under 6 feet in length. You will be fine with a 10 gallon. I personally have no issues adding multiple fish to a Q tank at the same time, and would personally buy the Bangai's at the same time.
