    I currently have an ocellaris clown and a pink spotted watchman goby. I ordered a small bubble tip anemone, a six line wrasse, a mushroom coral, and a small CUC with some snails, hermits, an emerald crab and a peppermint shrimp. Would this be too much to add to the bioload at once? This should all be in next week.

    55 gallon corner with 90-100lbs of live rock. 120G protein skimmer and a small HOB refugium.

    Amonia and Nitrite 0. Nitrate is around 0-15 usually.

    Am just wondering if I would be good adding these all at once. Thanks for the help.

    Corals don't really play a large factor in the bioload, it's fish that we usually try and space out. Same with inverts. You're fine.

    I thought so. But figured I would check to be sure. Thanks for clarifying for me though.

    Yes, you will be good. It's too many fish you need to watch out for. :)
