    Hello all

    need some input with my fish selection.
    Currently have a fish only setup so i need advice on what fish could work.
    2mX.6X.6

    This is my current inhabitants:
    Vlaminigi tang
    Bluethroat trigger(female)
    Midas blenny
    Sifter goby(valencia sexguttata)
    Lamarck angel
    Swallowtail angel
    Rusty angel
    emperor angel(juv)
    2 percs clowns

    Want list:
    Regal angel
    bluethroat male
    Purple tang
    Regal tang
    Flame angel or Queen angel

    Anybody foresee issues with this mix?
    Also if the want list fish will mix well,what order should they be added?

    The regal angel prefers to be in a tank with non-aggressive tank mates so you could have a problem with triggers and the emperor and queen angels when they get bigger. The emperor and queen could also clash with each other when they get bigger. I dont have experience with triggers but they have a bad rep as being aggressive so they could be a problem with the other fish at any stage. Depends if you are lucky and have a non-aggressive fish.

    No problem with the blue throat bud, they got good temperament. The vlamingii is going to be the issue. He will be to big for your tank. I have a 350mm vlamingii still growing and he is battling in a 2000 x 700 x 800 tank.

    the triggers in question are actually the most passive ones,fully reef safe as i had a pair in my first setup,very docile triggers.
    the queen angel i know could pose a real issue with the emperor,so i was two minded about gettin the queen,but they so nice:(

    otherwise all the pygmy angels wont cause a problem?

    the one i have now was giving to me from a fellow reefer as he had it in a 600 cube,he is now about 17cm in size.(not sure why lfs sells these guys)
    yes im aware of the potential size,will see when i get ther and donate it to another reefer with a huge ass tank,maybe Robvdv with the 10ton tank.
    must say i had the vlamini for a month now and he is such a nice passive fish,even comes to my hand when feeding

    You won't want to part with him once you have had him a year or so.

    Start planning the big ass tank now if I were you.
