Looking for fish suggestions to finish out the stocking of my Waterbox 100 - ~70Gal Disp + 30G sump

Currently have:
- Pair of O. Clowns
- Pair of Bangaii Cardinals

Looking to add an Orchid Dottyback next - can't find one at a local store.
Any good suggestions to finish stocking it out? Wrasse suggestions?

Mixed reef: zoas, LPS, some SPS

Let me know what fish you would like to add/have!

Flasher wrasses are great and could probably hold their own against a dottyback

I have not looked at the basslets too much.
How aggressive are they? I just love the bright purple color and flash

I would pass on the dottyback also. Royal gramma would be great along with a yellow coris wrasse or some other leopard or coris wrasse. Marine beta, long nose hawkfish, fire fish, would all be great also. Room for all of them together in that tank with the fish you already have.

They are simi but tend to be a lot more laid back than a dotty back. The royal gramma or the black cap basslet
A yellow corris wrasse or a leapord would be good for pest control
A dwarf angel.will provide lots of movement and color
Bristle toothed tang would work in a 70 gallon tank
The marine betta will eat small fish and crustaceans.

Thanks for the input, leaning towards adding:

- Royal Gramma OR BlackCap Baslet
- Firefish
- Leopard Wrasse
- Fairy/Flasher Wrasse

Do I need to worry about the order in which the remaining fish are added?

Not with thay list. You will be fine.
 

Do you have a little reefing side hustle that helps you earn money to put back into your hobby?
