Hey everyone,

Really looking for some good input on my stocking plans. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Current system:
- 75 gal barebottom with 80 lbs of dry rock
- ReefKeeper2 controller
- 2x Tunze 6015(550gph), 1x Tunze 6065(1700gph)
- 30 gal sump
- Octopus Extreme 200 with OTP-2000 NW pump
- Phosban 150 reactor
- Magdrive 12 return with Magdrive 9.5 backup
- 5 stage RO/DI for water supply using Seachem Reefsalt

System upgrades:
- Aquatrance 3000 for skimmer (purchase same time as clowns)
- Photon V2 48 led light (purchase same time as cuc)
- ReefBreeders Par38 Refugium bulb for cheato (purchase same time as cuc)
- Dosing Kalkwasser in the ATO (purchase ATO ASAP, daily top offs are a PITA)

Potential stocking in order: (weeks after 3 month cycle)
-20-30 snails(Margarita, Nerite, Trochus, Turbo), pod supply, 2x Emerald crab (week 0)
-4x Pepermint shrimp, 2x Cleaner shrimp (week 2)
-2x Ocellaris clownfish (week 4)
-3x Chromis, 1x Brittlestar, Cheato in sump (week 8)
-Foxface (One Spot) (week12)
-Six Line Wrasse (week 16)
-Kole tang (week 20)
-Anthias ? (if not too many fish already) (week 24)
-BTA for the clowns (week 30)
-add numerous LPS after BTA settles
-fill in cuc as needed

Concerns:
1. Too many fish?
2. Good order to introduce? (Anthias will go in before Six line if I do get some)
3. Suggestions for cuc diversity. (No hermits please, love them, not a fan of reef hunger games though)
 
Yellow eyed Kole tang, pink spotted goby, gold stripe maroon clown would be good addition. If you check out my profile you`ll see my tank and the many LPS that are in my tank.

Thanks for the reply,
That is actually my top choice tang. As for the others, I don't think the goby would like my bare bottom. I've also been looking at other clowns but I think the maroons are too aggressive for anthias. I'm leaning towards the Picasso percula clowns. I've also added a flasher wrasse to my possible list.
Any LPS you recommend? I'm still lost as far as coral choice other than wanting LPS.
