zacheyp's 40 breeder

so i have toyed with several ideas from a 3 gal pico reef to a 90 gallon reef. i have decided on a 40 breeder fowlr because i am going to move within 3 years and i feel that a 40 gallon is the biggest tank that i could move. this will be a slow build as i dont have the tank yet but here is the stock and eqiptment, how does it look?
aquaclear 110
2 koloria 250's
some cheap light from petco
30 pounds base rock

the tank is gonna be predatory, how does this stock look
2 true percs
1 lemon peel angel
1 royall dottyback
1 auriga butterfly
a wrasse of some type

are all those fish ivert safe and could i add another fish?

You'll have to watch which Wrasse you get. They get rather large, and most will eat or pick at your inverts. Your Butterfly will get 8" and is not recommended for a 40g tank, but they will not pick at inverts.

the angel may eat small shrimp too. the butterfly will go after clams and anemones. you may also want to do 425 powerheads and maybe even better the 550s.
