My stock list in my 65g with no problems:

- 2 Clowns
- Yellow Watchman Goby/Pistol Shrimp
- Melanurus Wrasse
- Radiant Wrasse
- Flame Fin Tomini Tang
- Squaretail Bristletooth Tang
- Lyretail Anthias

I am still looking to add at least one more wrasse, but undecided on which one at the moment.

And your tangs do fine? I don’t want to get a fish that I’m gonna have to eventually upgrade to a bigger tank unfortunately my apartment isn’t that big

Yes, Fish and Coral is a mixed reel. You'll want fish that are classified as reef safe, or they will nip at and eat corals. That could get expensive.

Also some are considered reef safe (with caution). Meaning they might decide they like corals or they could be cuc eaters. So snails, crabs, shrimp, star fish, urchins, conch could be on their menu.

Yes. The Ctenochaetus genus AKA Bristletooth is the smallest of the tangs. They’ll max out at 5”-6”. Most would argue that you may not get away with two Bristletooths in the same tank but the mirror trick fixed that in a couple of days.
