  • 2 Banggai cardinals
  • 1 B&W ocellaris clownfish
  • 1 Ocellaris clownfish
  • 2 Neon Gobies
  • 1 BiColor Angelfish ( posably, waiting for cofermation)
  • 3 Blue Flasher Wrasses

i think a flame or coral beauty would make a better angel choice. are the wrasse going to be a 1:2, male:female raito? im curious to see how that works out. pretty heavy stock for a 40 reef IMO but i always under stock. i think you'll enjoy the orange and black clowns, its interesting when they pair.

I fear that the neon gobies will be to small and not find food.
I also would like to change the blue flasher wrasses out. stocking update to come.
