If you're going to use sand sifters then I recommend having no more than 1/2" - 1" of sand. Otherwise decaying matter will accumulate at the bottom. This would be a disaster waiting to happen after a few years of accumulation.
chucking entire fish list
1 blue hippo tang
3 blue reef chromnis
these are definates want someother tang, angels and other elegant fish I can put in here. also want a fish that cleans the sand. any comments?
sorry about being so picky with the fishies but I am very opinionated so I would prefer the bicolor and the lemonpeel rather than a flame but you know WAY more so if a flame is better I will take it also wondering if I could squeze a another small tang in there thanks in advance

I hightly recommend the fighting conchs. They do a great job on the sand bed, and are fun to watch. My non-aquarist friends always enjoy watching its "elephant trunk" probing the sand and low level rocks. It's not a fish, but it does a great job and is fun/interesting to watch - what more could you ask for?
