    Great suggestions still going over your list @Mallard!

    I have decided against Blue spots and will go with black caps or chinstrap if I can get info on them.

    Also my decision on a trigger might be made for me :) I have a Linespot Trigger (Lineopunctatus Trigger) available to me and I do not think I can pass it up. Big thanks to The Coral Reef Shop for the offer :) ( https://twitter.com/CoralReefShop ) hrmmmmm awaiting pic's.

    This trigger is in a full blown reef right now and does not touch anything. In my understanding they are reef safe as they are a open water trigger and is why they are rare.. This is what i can find not many of this trigger fish are on the market.

    I believe it's a planktivore like the Sargassum and Crosshatch. I love a pair of Crosshatch triggers. Those are also on my list but it's really long :)

    Also 2 blood shrimp a few cleaner shrimp..

    I will be working on the list tomorrow..

    What do you guys think? It takes me a while to figure out what I want and what stocking order is best.

    The only other fish and inverts that are 100% on the list after this order are the following

    Jawfish (yellow head or black cap) breeder pair
    Gem Tang
    Schooling fish of some sort.

    Sounds great and nice list so far! Definite fan of anthias, just be prepared to pamper them as they need lots of feedings of good food each day. Im glad you decided against the blue spot jaws as they are extremely delicate and would also suggest no jawfish at all without sand. They constantly move shells and debris and will be too stressed and likely jump... that's the other thing is they are jumpers for sure
