Ok, Im setting up a 40gal breeder with 38 sump, and was wondering what order I should add the fish I want.
As of right now I have 2 false clowns and 1 hi-fin red banded shrimp goby.
I want to add yellow hawaiin tang, coral beauty angel, and 6-line wrasse, and also a coral banded shrimp,
Now I know people say not to add a tang in that small of tank, but it is probably going to happen, so if I could not get any crap for it and just help that would be greatly appreciated.

Scrap the Tang, unless you get a small one and plan on either upgrading soon or giving back to LFS when it grows too large for your tank..

The other things you mentioned are all questionable except the CBA.. 6-lines are known to be aggressive.. If you get one, plan on adding it last and get a small one.

As for the coral beauty, they're not known to be much of a problem. However I've heard a couple stories of them going crazy for coral polyps.. Just keep an eye on it and if it starts eating your corals might want to take it out.

Coral banded shrimp are notorious, I'd stay away from them.

These are just my opinions based on what I've read on RC.
