My tank is a standard 90 48x24x18 and I am using 2x400 watt metal halides.
Dont start off small!
In the tank: 3 yellow tangs, 3 azure damsels, 3 neon gobies, 2 scooter blennies, and a bangaii cardinal
SPS, LPS, Softies, Zoos, Clams, Anemones
These snozberries taste like snozberries
I have been doing this for many years and this tank was moved to kansas from California about 7 months ago
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
