Thanks! I did end up getting a dwarf angel, Coral Beauty. My Barlett's Anthias was beating up my clowns so she went back to the store. They had this guy, flameback, lemon peel and flame angel. I wanted to add blue color and the coral beauty looked healthier than the African flameback. So he came home with me.

Lol, I was just reading the thread about you taking your fish back. Good choice of the coral beauty!

I just added a flame angel to my 125 and i absolutely love her!! Coral beauty was a front runner as well but the vivid orange of the flame won me over. Also going to do a school of 5 chromis as well good choice in fish

Congrats on your flame angel! Such pretty fish and tons of personality. I bet 5 Chromis would add so much color and activity to your aquarium.

I am sad to say I took the coral beauty back to the store earlier in the evening. He went after a bubble coral then a leather coral. I really liked that fish. The color and more importantly his activity. But can't afford to loose corals I care so much for. So I'm down to three fish again. Two clowns and the Christmas wrasse.
LFS has a nice reef ready 120 gallon tank for sale. 4x2x2. It looks so nice. Can't wait to get a bigger tank like that.

Awww im sorry to hear that. Sometimes we get stuck between a rock and a hard spot. I can honestly say, without any hesitation, take the plunge into a big tank.. I had absolutely no saltwater experience at all (i mean at all) and only had a 20g fw tank when i bought this 125. The amount of learning and knowledge it takes to maintain a sw tank is why i love this hobby (oh and the amazing fish obviously) even if moneys an issue, you wont even remember spending it when youre looking into your own big tank

I had thought a lot about upgrading when I moved to a new home recently. It was easier to do it from a practical point of view. Either move the old tank or new one. Whichever I picked a tank has to be set up from ground up.
I opted out to keep my 40 breeder. I started out with a 6 gallon JBJ nano cube and got rid of it two days after I bought it. It was too small. Then got a 10 gallon followed by 30 gallon cube all within 2-3 months period. Mentally I just had to stick with my 40 breeder and enjoy it. Otherwise it would have been 4 upgrades in 3-4 months. That's crazy. Lol.
So I will give myself at least a year with my current setup and start thinking about upgrading then. I definitely see the value of a larger tank and appreciate your advice.
