    Water is set, running a 55 gal DT, and 25 gal sump/refug, here are first round of thoughts.

    2 Ocellaris Clowns
    2 Bagnai Cardinals
    1 Scopas Tang
    1 Fuzzy Dwarf Lion

    The Scopas I saw today was already 2 inch long, the rest are still in a juvenille state.
    Anybody know of a sand sifting goby, that won't spread sand all over my tank?

    I believe you shouldn't have a scopas tang in a 55 those fish reach 1' long. The ocellaris and the bangai cardinals are fine, but your tank is too small for tangs, specially for that one. Just a thought.

    agree, not a good option...you can get a true orange spotted goby (the one with black markings on the fins), mine never sifted sand

    Watchman gobies sift sand but don't make a mess. Yeah, no scopas or lion. Banggais are fun, love mine.

    If you were going to do the Dwarf Lion, I'd be very careful with what you put in the tank with it. Understand that anything that can fit in it's mouth, will be food. Their stomachs can blow up and expand to hold a enormous amount of food. Get Nassarius snails to sift the sand if you're worried about corals getting buried, or the tank looking messy.
