Well,,your probably not going to like me too much,but a regal (blue)tang,,really needs a larger system too...Yes people do it and yes the tang does OK for some time,,but they get so big and stress so easy ..just don't think it will be happy in a 150 for life....If your upgrading again then thats fine....

Not anytime soon.... Oh, well, why I asked. So the eel sound good? And the puffer is ok, too? Any suggestion on what kind of puffer? Recommend a tang?

I would get the zebra moray eel, instead of the snowflake because they look cooler and I've heard they are very docile and won't eat fish.

I'm attempting the blue tang in my 125 6 foot tank and so far so good. he is active but not nearly as much as the yellow tang.

As long as he has 6 feet of swim room I think a blue is do-able.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

They just grow so fast and have the potential to get huge...Like i said ,,people do it all the time........so ,its really up to the you, i guess..

A puffer and tang will be fine,,but keep in mind your CUC will be eaten..CUC's are way overrated IMO,,i haven't had one in about 4 years

I think the eel is well worth it! It just wants a loving home!
