    Hey Masa
    My DT volume is 250l total volume including sump is 340l.
    My idea for fish are as follows -
    Pair of clowns percular
    Maybe a tomato clown
    Regal tang
    Yellow tang
    A few anthias

    Cuc - please advise on what to get.

    Please advise me if my fish list will work or not.

    I will not be stocking all fish at once , once my tank has gone through the cycle I'll add the clowns then once a month I'll add more fish.
    When do you add the cuc ?

    hi,

    i would leave out the tomato clown, can become very agro...
    other fish look good

    as for cuc i would add snails, maybe 2 small hermits and a serpent starfish. as you see some algae start then add snails, add hermits when you add fish as they will eat the uneaten food etc, as starfish maybe a month later, but you can feed them and add sooner

    I agree with @dallasg on the tomato. I had a pair...
    Buy the tangs as small as possible.

    Maybe a group of flasher wrasses?
    Pair of bangaii cardinals?
    Maybe designer clownfish instead of the normal ones?

    Me, I'd leave out the tangs. That really isn't enough room for them. Firefish are nice, as are some of the bass let's and blennies. Also look into different wrasses. Or a dwarf angel, like a jumping bean.?

    Tank is really not big enough for the tangs in my opinion. They need space. Rather get a Tomini tang. The tomato clown as already stated is very aggressive. Look at the smaller fish. There are really nice ones out there.
