No corals for me, I am debating selling my tank right now so I can start building my big predatory tank.

School of tangs? I wouldn't put more than 3 in a 125, and I still think the tang isn't a good idea. But that's why we're all here, others opinions.

I'm thinking you should possibly try some dottybacks? Like the neon, a pair of those would look nice, that would probably kick out one of the larger fish you want though in terms of stocking

I figured 3 was a school! lol I'm still going back and forth with the tang but I'm pretty sure it will be OK. For now I've got swimming room in front and in back of the rock formation so that should keep him busy for awhile. hehe

I've seen the dottybacks, they are beautiful! But I heard early on that they were aggressive....I'll pop over to Liveaquaria and take another look at them. Might even be a good idea for the 125g.

I already have the filtration system for the 125 just need to find a deal on a tank and stand.

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

So I'm shaking off this thread since I'm still stocking LOL.

So far in the 55g I have:
2- b&w oscellaris
2- oscellaris
1-lawnmower Blenny
1-Pink spotted watchman
1- Royal Gramma

I had been saving space for a yellow Tang but I have decided to wait til my 125g is up before getting some of them. I am kinda looking at the yellow eye tang but still unsure on him.

I also have a huge CUC, a sea hare named Bob, 4 peppermint shrimp and 1 pistol shrimp.

I was looking at a small school of orange lined cardinals. They should start at about an inch each and get up to 3 inches supposedly.

This will probably be the last fish I get to put in before I get a 125g so I wanna make sure I make it count.

Everyone has been real great in helping me get to this point so just a few more ideas would be great.

thanks guys I really appreciate it!

Yep, I mentioned it above. Yellow eye kole tang.

Do you think that would be a better choice than a school of cardinals?

The kole tang would be a very nice fish, i think they are so pretty. The cardinals will also look great, their stripes will really glow in the blue lighting i think. How many were you tihnking of getting?? I'm just wondering in case you end up getting like two males and one female, the two males will most likely fight it out.

I was thinking 4 on the cardinals. But its either the tang or cardinals I think. I don't wanna be too stocked.
