My first saltwater tank

Hello everyone
Ive decided to start my first saltwater tank. 50g fish with live rock (ive already started seeing fan worms!)

Ive been wondering about the stocklist. My fiancee is in love with Ocellaris Clownfish, I plan on getting two.
I also want to get two yellow tail damsel fish.
After that I have ideas but nothing concrete. Bangaii Cardinal fish and Blue Chromis are considered, as well as clown goby.

Any ideas?

To many ideas to throw at you. But, I would ditch the Damsels (devilfish) They are some mean dudes. But there are many more Damsels that are much better suited.
Reef tank? If not, perhaps a Pygmy Angel? There are a couple of different small Angels you have to chose from.

I've looked at dwarf angels and I like the Coral Beauty. I know the damsel's are mean what species are better? Ive looked at the blue damsel too. Would that be a better fit? I can't lie, I am hooked on them. :3

Nevermind. Read the profile on the Blue damsel fish. Never saw it before.

holy chromis batman! Those ALL look awesome.

On another note. What about the different variations of the clown goby or the bicolor dottyback.

All those are good choices also. They will be fine. Can be alittle rough sometimes, but for the most part Dottybacks are ok.

There are a bunch of different gobies that are good additions. My favorite is my yellow watchman goby. Also royal Grammas and firefish are great too.
