Here's the plan...

I updated my profile to list my planned fish/inverts/wish list, any suggestions?

Fish list looks good. (although the tang police might stop by ) I would add another maxi-jet 1200 to give you more of a caotic current in the tank. You will need two more when you start adding some corals. You might also consider bumping up the LR a few pounds in the future. Great plan.

All right, pull it over buddy. (I coudn't help myself!)

Tangs generally need a lot of space to swim, which usually calls for a 75G or better, even for the Yellow Tang. Yellow Tangs also demand better water quality, and a different diet than most fish I have dealt with. However, the Yellow Tang will be your window to water quality by color. I'm not here to preach to you..only as a suggestion. The rest of the list looks great though! 8)

Hehe Lando...

I realize this, which is one of the reasons he will be added last. I will get a chance to see how the bioload is doing, how the water quality is, etc. As always, thanks for the input.

Also Lando, the mag 7 return pump is in the opposite corner as the Maxi pointing upwards towards the front center of the tank. This puts me up to about 900gph water flow. BUT I still plan on getting 2 more Maxi-Jets so that was pretty much pointless.

There is one thing I can say about the Yellow Tang: They love to graze on lots of lr each day. They are beautiful specimens. Good luck to you.
