Next sunday, I am getting my first fish. Here is what I want. I am only going to get the watchman goby on Sunday.
-2 percula clowns
-1 flame angel (is he too big. I hope not, I really want one)
-1 watchman goby

that's it...oh, and a cleaner shrimp. is this acceptable?

Nope, a 29G tank is the minimum size for a dwarf angel (Flame or Coral Beauty). You have a good list there. Enjoy them.

yeah i agree the 2 percs and the watchman will be good in their you may be able to get one more small fish, i would suggest a royal gramma, but they can become aggresive/territorial sometimes.

woohoo! This is not too high of a bio-load is it? I want to keep them stress free, and I don't like looking at a crowded tank.

I also want 6 or 7 corals in the mix in a month or so. Does this change anything?

i believe some are pretty reef safe but its a coin toss he either will nip at everything or he wont touch a thing...but then again there are some special ones who only go after the most expensive corals.

had to be a catch. Drats! What other fish are reef safe with such great color. I think they have the brightest color I've seen. I really want one. What if they are fed regularly?

Tank raised would probably be much less likely to eat corals right?

i think its more out of curiosity then whether or not their hungry. Think of it as a buffet, you are very full, but then you see something that looks tasty...even though your full you still have a bite. Another cool fish is the sixline wrasse...

darn that extra helping. I guess I have more in common with fish than I knew. six line wrasse, interesting but equally risky in my smaller tank.

I, too, wanted a Flame Angel, but the 50/50 isn't very good odds to me so I got a 6-line wrass and I love her!
