Im stocking a 180x90x37cm tank and need some input for fish to add. This is my list so far, I have a qt and around 1.2 inch - 3 inch sandbed. Also I know there are a few difficult fish to keep, they will all be the last fish in the tank. Im definitely set on a regal angel but could have either a tamarin or leopard wrasse. Looking for recommendations on fish that aren't massive but also wont get lost in this tank

1x Pacific/Indian Regal Angelfish - 6th
1x Sleeper Banded Goby - 4th
1-2x Lamarck’s Angelfish - 3rd
1-2x Bangaii Cardinal - 1st
1x Adorned/canary Wrasse - 2nd
1x Meleagris Leopard Wrasse - 8th
1x Yellowtail Tamarin Wrasse - 7th
1x Copperband Butterfly - 5th

Edit: will try to make it mostly a bali biotope aquarium, will include tridacna clams and longspine urchins. Also corals found in that area such as euphyllia

List looks good. The only thing is you might have some aggression between the angels but in a tank that size it will probably be okay, also when you get the copper band make sure it’s eating, a good place to get them from is dr reef.

You could really get any fish you want in a tank that size but some good ones are:

Most tangs(yellow, purple, blue/hippo, sailfin are some good ones).
Maroon Clownfish.
a few Lyretail Anthias.
Foxface.
Hawkfish.

Like I said there’s a lot more fish you can get but these are some just off the top of my head.

I'm in new zealand so I have to get all the fish imported from overseas breeders but there is a fish store that will qt for me and get the fish eating. Im thinking about some dispar anthias or some other peaceful ones. Also maybe a convict tang
