So i have my 100g tank going i already have

Lawnmower blenny
Hi Fin banded goby
2 chromis
Six Line Wrasse
1 true prec and anenome

and this is what i want to add over time

2 Peppermint Shrimp
2 Cleaner skunk shrimp
2 Fire Shrimp
1 Bi Color benny
1 Fire Fish goby
1 yellowhead jawfish
1 yellow watchman goby
1 Orange Stripe Prawn Goby
1 yellow tang
1 Royal Gramma basslet
2 Anthias
1 Purple Star (Linkia)
1 Clam

Is this pushing the bio load of a 100g tank or still fine? Any thing on the list i should stay away from? Suggestions?

I'd probably cut the fish count down a lot. I don't think two Anthias will work, because of social structure issues. The purple star might not be reef-safe, depending on what it really is.

Everybody has a yellow tang but with that tank you can get a purple tang. And the larger the load on your tank means much more maintance and more stressed the stock will be. But be sure theres enough hiding spots for all.

I think with good husbantry you will be okay. I really like your fish list with all smaller fish wth the exception of the yellow tang. I think it will be cool with the personalities of the fish you have choosen. As stated above though, do you really want the work of keeping those anthias fed?

i would say yes that is a good list with the right filtration...but most people on here wouldnt agree with me

i suppose if u got all the right equipment to take care of large amount of fish life. then u should be ok.

Linkias are very difficult to keep. They just arnt suited well for aquarium life, and no one is exactly sure on what they eat. Over a few months they normally starve and die. If you do choose to get one wait till your tank is at least a year old to better their chances, but you would probably be better just leaving it out, for the linkias sake.
