    Afternoon all :)

    I have been researching fish for my tank and have a wish list that I would like to share with you. I would love to know your suggestions and thoughts.

    Also If you think I might be overstocking my tank please let me know.

    My Current live stock are as follows.

    2 Blennies
    1 Naso Tang 5cm (I think my tank will be too small for him in a year or so but he loves life for the moment)
    2 Purple fire fish
    1 cleaner wrasse
    1 cardinal
    1 cleaner shrimp
    1 fire Shrimp (He never comes out from behind the rocks. Any idea how I can get him to the front?
    5 hermit crabs
    6 snails.

    What I would still like to put in.

    Blue Tang ( not sure if he will fight with the Naso)
    1 tailspot blenny
    1 yellow watchman
    2 Nemo (wife is dying for some nemo, also the niece and nephew.

    By the way my tank is about 350 lt corner unit with a fair amount of swimming space.

    What do you think will that be over stocking or would you suggest maybe some other fish?

    Also I have just been offered a Mimic Saddle Puffer that I think looks nice. Maybe that instead of the Blue Tang?

    tank is a bit small eventually for both the naso and blue tang. I got a 750L display and they are at each other all day today. Not sure why, because they were always chilled out with each other.
