So ive just started my first marine tank, its dimentions (L x W x H) are 600mm x 400mm x 500mm

Id like to do an LPS and softie reef and was just looking for 2-5 fish to slowly add over time

I was thinking

1x sixline wrasse
1x Midas blenny
1x blue spotted jawfish
And once my refugium is seeded properly a mandarin goby

What do you think??

Blue spotted Jawfish is beautiful BUT requires a substrate layer of at least 3" in depth!

I thought it was Okey aslong as you gave them a few 3" 'hills with pvc pipe in to create a burrow?

I guess that would work but I don't know for sure as I have never kept this beautiful fish before. Good luck with your tank mate :)
