    The reason I wanted the sea hair is for cleaning ,, i heard they are excellent in keeping detritus off rocks and substrate

    I think that the lunar wrasse, regal, naso and koran will outgrow your tank very soon. The rest is cool.

    I think that a school of 3 or more fire gobies looks really cool. Just make sure that they can't jump out.

    There you go ;)

    Now go get that Regal tang and make sure you feed him immunity boosting food to limit the white spot he will most likely get
