Nice tank! Is that the stocking you want or have? and by 3 coral beauties do you mean dwarf angels? because 3 is too many. Go with one, also they might nip at corals if you are making a reef they require some looking after. Neons might be eaten by the angel(not sure but they are small) and have a life span of maybe a year. Maybe go with a Shrimp goby and Pistol shrimp pair?

Just my thoughts haven't read all the way thought the thread but that is my basic knowledge. If someone else recommended that stocking listen to them not me...unless it was a pet store. Good Luck!

2 dwarf angles form a pair, 3+ form a harem where there is 1 male and 2+ females. Dwarf angels are not active hunters they may eat meat if it is served to them but they require algea also. As an added bonus to the heath neon gobies, they will clean other fish of parasites to some preditars MAY pass them by as a meal. I may have little to now corals, but I think I would like to observe a trio of dwarf angels rather than corals.
I am also going to have bangaiis in a smaller tank to breed them, I will get a pair of clowns instead for this tank.

I can't hook up my camera till my mom gets home plus she has a better camera. Anyway this fish is becoming my faroite fish seeming on how he is my only fish it just doesn't seem far to other fish. He is eating well and within a day he seems to have picked out were he wants to be. I plan on getting him a mate soon that will be the next fish.
While, I was at the store they through in 2 polyps of star polyps for free. When I was acclamating them I forgot my lfs keeps the salinity lower for the fish than the coral so I think they died, but they may come through any suggestions.

Found a hermit out of its shell so I gave it one. Any reasons why? I thinks he is molting and got blown around by a water pump.
