Haha I meant sohal tang but my phone autocorrected. A shoal of tangs would be great too, just not a shoal of sohals as they're big and mean.

Love the puffer although I think I like the black spotted one better. The tang is ok but I prefer a lemon peel tang

1000 gallon salt stocking

As a card carrying member of the tang police, I am for once happy to say you could keep almost any tang in there, or a school of them.

The thing you should think about is livestock compatability. The tank is big enough for anything that tops out at a foot. But some fish just don't get along. But even aggression is dampened by tank size. I envy your room and budget. But man, are you gonna burn some electricity and buy a lot of salt. If I had this opportunity, I would go reef, but that would be very expensive and time consuming to pull off right. Starting with 1000lbs of rock.

What's behind the scenes? Lighting?

There's really very little that would not work in a tank that large. Puffers have great personality and there are plenty of fish that would work with one. I'm a big fan of Angels (both the fish and baseball team) so I would get at least a couple of large Angels (Scribbled are my favorite) and probably some dwarf Angels too. If you wanted to go all out, get some of the hybrid or aberrant ones from Vanuatu. Big bucks, but kinda one-of-a-kind too. I'd get all sorts of Tangs and some wrasses too.

A Red Sea Sohal Tang (prettier color), Scribbled Angel and Aussie Harlequin Tusk (better color) would be at the top of my "must haves".

Just be sure you have the filtration and safeguards in place for these fish. Even with 1000 gallons, start out slowly.

The people who are building my tanks will do all the filtration and lights for me I just have to decide when comes time what I want. They will also add the fish I want when it's safe I leave that up to them. They are great guys. I do want some tangs and def some puffers thinking of some rays.
