1 flame angel
1 lemon peel
1 thread fin butterfly
1 cream angel.

Fluval 405 external, mini internal filter, internal protein skimmer.

2 10k White bulbs and 2 blue actinic

Feeding 2-3 times a day twice flake and once mix of 5 different frozen food

I thinks that's all thats needed to know
I would start by taking the canister filter out (can be a high source of nitrates).

You have too many fish for that size tank, not to mention some of those fish should not even be in that size tank to begin with.

I would strongly consider a HOB skimmer by Reef Octopus, maybe a dual chamber. Those size tanks are funny, not quite big enough for a sump but big enough that you need a very strong HOB skimmer.

Feeding needs to be cut by a third. I would say once a day for that amount of fish. I would consider maybe selling some of those fish to someone. Starting with the tangs, they should never be in a tank under 90 gallons, more so 120 gallons.

Please look into the fish before buying, and if your LFS is telling you its ok, maybe change place!

120 Gallon Reef
