1-yellow tang
1-powder blue tang
1-flame angel
1-coral banded shrimp

Yellow+Blue Tang= 1 dead Tang

One of the few things about salt water fish I know is you cant mix blue and yellow tangs

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

This is an incorrect theory. He can in fact keep a Yellow and a Blue in the same tank together. It would be better if it was an 8' long tank, but he can get by with the 180.

You may have issues with the Coral Band Shrimp eating the Cleaner Shrimp. Stocking list looks sound to me. Your going to have problems keeping the Nitrates at 0 for the Anemones though, thats a big load you have picked.

Cleaner Shrimp and Peppermints, but a Coral Band will get ahold of them sooner or later, imo.
