180 Gallon FOWLR w/ Inverts stocking
So in the not so distant future, I plan to get one of these and here is what the stocking may or may not look like. It should be a peaceful tank who should not harm the inverts.
2x Whip Fin Fairy Wrasse
1x Spotbreast Angelfish
7x Dispar Anthias
1x Court Jester Goby
1x Firefish
1x Foxface Lo
6x Blue/Green Reef Chromis
6x Spotted (Pajama) Cardinalfish
As for the inverts:
24x Dwarf Blue Leg Hermit Crab
10x Astraea Turbo Snail
10x Nassarius Snail
4x Peppermint Shrimp
6x Emerald Crab
4x Porcelain Crab
3x Banded Coral Shrimp
So what do you think? Good stocking? Too much inverts, bad mixes of fish? Thanks for any input.

That will be one awesome tank. I might look into a quarantine tank to make sure you do not suffer any crashes\losses from that one sick fish.Have you looked into any smaller tangs?Some of the rabbit fish get large but are still pretty sweet,what kind of fox face?.

Well I currently have a Yelllow Tang in my 29 gallon, he is only about 2.5-3 inches now and I was thinking of adding him to my 180 gallon tank once it comes. and the common one Foxface Lo (Siganus vulpinus) or maybe the one spot. We'll see. But they are that bad for its tank mates..I doubt anyone will attack him

Only the dorsal spines are venomous.I have seen the fox face fight with other fish but never have I seen one kill one with its spines,more like ward off.

Off topic sorta. Can i put a Peppermint shrimp in a 29 g With an Already Established (been there for 7 months) fire Shrimp

Cerith snails are the little ones with a long spire shaped shell,algae grazers.I have kept peppermints with a fire shrimp but there was much rock and I did not see the peppermints much,they are a little secretive by nature when fearful of predators.If you add the peppermint make sure to acclimate them slowly as they are rather susceptible to salinity changes.
