    Is it a reef tank or fish only tank.
    If fish only look at some butterflies.

    that depends... On a lot of factors.
    How many corals.
    Surface area.
    Turnover rate.
    UPS or not

    Then combinations of fish.
    Size of fish
    Growth rate of fish
    number of bigger fish
    compatibility between the fish
    filtration and effectiveness of your filtration.

    Can put 3 to 4 bigger fish, up to 150mm in there and 5 to 10 small fish. Or no big fish up to 20 small ones. All are dependable on a lot of factors.

    No 2 systems are the same.

    Dwarf angels can normally only go one per tank.

    Certain combos can work, Flame and coral for example.
    But jumping bean on its own.
