Well the angelfish should definately be added last because it tends to be territorial towards newcomers and that could stress out the newbies. Also, I think you should add the wrasses first because they'll probably be picked on if they're added after any fish. I say add the wrasses first, then the firefish, then the clowns, and then the angel. You can add the shrimp with any of the fish. Just make sure you acclimatize it slowly because they're very sensitive to new water.

I have two more questions.

1. Are there certain brands/types of food you guys would highly recommend?

2. If I were to have a little bit of space left in my stocking plan once I've revised it, what would you recommend I add? I want to try to stick with smaller, more colorful fish that are good fish for beginners.

formula 1 flake food. seems to work well. basslets or dottybacks generally are colourful small fish.

royal gramma for example:

Chatyak, I used to be a user of Big Als, but then I found www.marinedepot.com. I have compared prices, and Marine Depot has lower prices for everything and they also have a MUCH larger selection. I would HIGHLY recommend Marine Depot over Big Als.
