It looks like you have a couple other big reefs on your sig line, why not a Rhinecanthus trigger, or something not reef safe instead of crosshatch / blue throat (they are beautiful fish, but why not enjoy the fowlr). Also maybe pairs of butterflies, I believe they often are seen in pairs in the wild?

I do have the 470g SPS tank. Will the Humu fit in my current list?

List looks good. I would also say plan out very carefully on the order you will be adding in your fish. Angels go in at the same time, wrasses at the same time, butterfly fish in a group, and then a group of misc items for the triggers and puffers.


scribbled angel
Gold Flake Angel
Regal Angel

Nice angels, goldflakes are really nice but hard to keep in my experience. if you decide against one look at the false personifer angel or the chrysurus angel


Green Bird Wrasse
Checkerboard Wrasse
Banana Wrasse
Hardwicke Wrasse
Harlequin Tusk

maybe replace the green bird with a parrotfish or hogfish, thats just my opinion. Though there are other wrasses you can do instead. The bird wrasses are just really plain in my opinion, an ugly green color with not very much patterning though the females do get a lighter front half which is pretty cool. Other cool wrasses are the china wrasse, paddlefin wrasse, goldbar wrasse, red breasted wrasse, and the pink face wrasse.


Yellow Dogfish Puffer
Cross Hatch Trigger
Blue Throat Trigger

Are you going to be doing pairs of the triggers or singles?


Raccoon Butterfly
Pakistan Butterfly

Decided on not too many butterflies? Id do a nice school of them imo only 2 will look out of place. do something like 4-6 different species one of each species or a trio or pair of each you like.


Bicolor Angel Dwarf
Lemonpeel Angel Dwarf
Eibli Angel Dwarf
Flame Angel Dwarf


Dwarf angels look good, try for one of the hybrid lemon peels they are super cool

there are some nice triggers that are not reef safe that you could check out but i dont know if you would be able to keep multiples. Some of the nicest ones would be the black trigger, clown trigger, and titan triggers.. ohh and the assassi is really nice!

I politely disagree about the green bird wrasse.

I have one in a 250 with a bunch of other fish (mind you maybe not as pretty or big as your list),
But it's the one fish that stands out with his beak that everybody noticed right away.
He's peaceful and never bothers anybody on his own but when provoked can hold his grown.
Extremely hardy fish also as mines has been in tanks with ich that whipped out a few fish but never succumbed to even getting a white spot.

But are known to scrape rocks with their side.
Looks like a sign of ich but I've real articles that say it's a fish that does it normally.
I've had mine for over 1.5 years and he does that maneuver daily on the same 2 rocks!

Sorry for babbling on, just wanted to share my experience with my green bird.

Good Looking list, which parrot fish are you planning on?

When does the stocking begin?

Not sure on stocking. To be honest, I'm undecided on using liverock or some cool pretty fake coral structures like on the show Tanked. Liverock is great filtration, but looks kind of drab without corals growing on it

Use the purple reef rock, looks pretty cool in a fowlr tank. That's what I used in mine. Or you could do something where you left algae go crazy on ur rocks and have the rock full of life, also did that in my tank and that's what I currently have... it is on the reef rock so I spots are the plain white like the regular rock but the algae adds life and a food source for tangs, my tangs graze at it all day. I wouldn't use the fake coral. The bright colors of the coral might take away from the colors of the fish. In a fowlr tank you want the fish to stand out a lot better so the darker purple rock would help with that and the algae would help with some exhibiting their natural behavior
