    too many fish, id cut that list in half if you want to keep a school of chromis, if you take the chromis off the list then id cut a third off the list

    i dont see a problem with any of them except for maybe the blue ring angel or the lunar wrasse, so now you just need to decided what you want

    All of those would be compatible with one another, I think. You should narrow it down to 10 to 12 fish.

    Also, google leopard wrasse. It's a can't miss fish!!

    I think all those fish would be good together! Just cut down the amount of them just a little because if you have to many fish they will make to much waste and your readings will be to high!

    the annularis angel would just get too big for your tank, the yellow and blue regal tang would probably fight alot, you may have to pick just one. and if you get those two wrasses make sure they both arent males
