A post by another reefer with the same tank prompted me to check in on my own stocking situation. Let me know if this list is ok or if there are any issues.

Currently in Tank:
- 2 fire fish
- 1 purple fire fish
- Ornate Leopard Wrasse
- Lagoon Shrimp Goby
- Spotted Mandarin (and a very well established population of pods)
- Tiger snapping shrimp
- Scarlet Cleaner shrimp
- Blood Red Shrimp
- Tile Sea Star
- CUC: Astreaes, Nassarius, Ceriths, Dwarf ceriths, mixed hermit crabs (2 emerald crabs in my sump taking care of some GHA)

Future Plans:
- Pajama Cardinals x 5
- Royal Gramma
- Tomini Tang
- One Spot Foxface
- two Clown fish tbd on type

By my count that should be about 63inches of full grown fish in 71 gallons- should be ok right?

After all fish are in and doing well I'll start with some corals.

71g is really 56g with rockscape. Small tangs didn't do well in my XL300 at all.

A 350 will handle a Tomini tang no problem - I've had mine in there for 3+ years now.

I might suggest a pyramid butterfly instead of the foxface. Similar body profile/color pattern, but a little safer for future coral purchases and it won't compete as much with your tang for algae. If you get lucky it will also eat aiptasia (mine does) while not bothering corals at all.

Agree with other comments that your list looks good.

For reference, I’ve had my reefer 350 up for 4+ years now and here’s my stocking list:
- 3 tangs (Tomini, yellow, powder blue)
- 2 clowns
- 1 mandarin goby
- 2 damsels
- 2 wrasses (leopard and melanurus)
