Stocking list looks great. I don't think that you should have any problem. I would add them in this order:

1- skunk cleaner shrimp
2- firefish
3-midas blenny
4-banggai cardnial
5-algae blenny
6-flame hawkfish
7- false perculas
8- six line wrasse
9- coral beauty

Look at Softies, polyps mushrooms and zoas as easy to keep corals.

No he is last on my stocking list, so I am starting to look for a healthy specimen. I have heard that they are a fairly easy fish to keep, if you have enough live rock for this fish to graze on.

i would probably add a few more firefish, they are generaly schooling fish and should be kept with at least 4, also they will come out a lot more if you have more of them and i think it looks a lot cooler!

I have always heard that they the most the they can be kept as is a M/F pair. Do you have any personal experience with firefish?
