Ok sounds good. The eel hasn't caused any problems so far with my fish but only time will tell. Thank you for your input it has been greatly appreciated.

The powder blue will quickly outgrow a 125 and turn very nasty. I personally know of a person who had to sell her powder blue because it outgrew and became a terror in her 180.

DONT SELL THE EEL! these things are so cool. I have one in my 75g and it hasn't even shown interest in any shrimp or crabs. I feed him every other day.

I agree slitherbomb, it would certainly be difficult getting rid of the eel since it is the most interesting species in my aquarium and definitely my favorite. And as for the Powder Blue Tang, I have heard of stories of them getting aggressive but not of outgrowing the tanks. So far all I have read about them has said that a 125 gallon aquarium is suitable for them, so I will probably buy one as the last addition and if it were to become a problem it could be removed.

The eel will probably do fine with the fish that inhabit the top of the tank but the blenny, the mandarin and any other slow swimming bottom dwellers may become expensive snacks.

We used to have a Flame Hawkfish with until a crash with algae (I scrapped a large amount of algae off the back panel of glass with a razor blade and the nitrates from the dead algae killed an angel and the hawkfish DX). He used to swim in the rocks with the Eel and as a lot of people know, not a good swimmer XD.

A hippo would be fine in an 125g. All the places that sell them recommend them for 100g or larger. As long as your tank is not crazy stocked. As long as you have a nice open area for them to swim and graze you should be fine with a hippo, but not both a hippo and powder then you maybe asking for trouble.

That's weird, every single place I've seen or read about a hippo tang says 180+..... And his stock list is a bit much to be including a hippo tang, but its his tank, unfortunately once the hippos bigger, he's gonna be a handful with 20 other tankmates

*****edit**** sorry rambo, def not saying you're wrong on the hippo, just strange
