    Hi All I just wanted to get some opinions on what to add to my reef tank from my list of possible fish (also if you have any suggestions that would be great as well). The tank has been up and running for quite a few years now and is a 180 gallon mixed reef tank with a 125 gallon sump. Currently there is a blue hippo tang, green chromis, two clowns, sixline, two bangai, royal gramma basslet, yellow watchman, and a red scooter dragonet. Here is my list of possible fish I thought would be nice to add:

    starry blenny
    midas blenny
    Foxface
    Royal Gramma basslet
    Coral Beauty angelfish
    Tailspot blenny
    group of 3 Zebra bared dartfish
    flame hawkfish
    3 dispar anthias
    blue throat trigger
    Yellow Tang
    engineer goby(Still under debate)

    I really like my engineer goby, but they can make a mess out of your sand and never seem to be done engineering. I really like blue throats, I know AA had one last weekend. They had two but I bought one.

    How big was it? Also I was debating if they should go in after some of the others or earlier.

    Maybe 3" and it was a male. I got the bigger one, but the one he had left was more colorful.

    Love my engineers. Have 3 in my 75g and will be expanding their group to 5+ for the 500g. They are very social and passive fish. Not for those who like to keep lots of corals on the sandbed, because they bury everything, but one of my favorite fish.
