Tank has been cycled and so far has 2 Banggai Cardinals, 6 Nerite snails, 1 Spotted Nassarius, 1 Emerald Crab. 10 or more small Britle Stars and Bristle worm that came with the live rock. What else should I add for a CUC? Also some ideas on more fish to put in. Thanks.

Cucumber, not now but say in 6 months (need a mature tank and sand bed or they die), but when you get there i would put in a tigertail cucumber for sure! they are great detrivoirs!
Fish.....Gobies- like 15 red spot trimma gobies. They are sooooo cool. Clowns- but black saddle backs 3 of them(my fav). Wrasses- flashers, lots and lots of flashers all kinds. With a six foot long tank like you have i would definetly put in some tangs, a school of yellows (3, add them all at once) and a powder blue and an orange shoulder too! That would be sweet! In fact add all the tangs at once....less aggression that way! Have fun stocking it. But go slow.

i would put in some smallish hermit crabs. my pic would be scarlet, halloween, blue legged. nothing bigger because they end up knocking over
everything ie blue knuckle.:nod:

tangs would be a great idea for a long tank,
but i dont know about cucumber, if they are stressed in some how, they release poison to your tank that enough to kill all

Your correct, but the tigertail cucumbers are not toxic like other cucmbers.

Is your tank a four foot tall?
When did your tank cycle finish?
