Nothing new to report, no bites on any of the 3 tanks I have for sale on CL. The guy who was coming to buy the pico never showed. Figures...

I am thinking I am gonna totally part out the 55g so I can get it out of here and buy the 90g stand. I could buy the stand now but have no spot for it until the 55g goes.

grrr just wanted a quick sale now I gotta part it out. At least I can keep the heater and powerhead for the 90g then.

so I made some stocking choices today after much thought. I;ve got it almost complete. At least this way I know exactly what's going in and what I need to do. I'm still stocking the 125g and i think I finished up that final stocking too.

For this 90g-

Soldier fish
Flame Hawkfish
Blue Assessor
Double saddle Angel OR yellow long nose
I'm picking two wrasses out of the below choices
Pink Face
Carpenters
McCoskers
As for my centerpiece fish I'd like to have a harlequin tusk.

I'd be willing to give up one of the wrasses and the assessor to make that happen.

What do you think?

I also want to put in a starfish. Will any of the fish above mess witha chocolate chip starfish?

Would having turbo snails be ok, they are pretty big.....

harlequin tusk live aquaria says it needs a 125 gallon. i want one of those too. but thought it was a no go for me until we get our 125 or 180 which ever one we can get a better deal on.

Yeah, I saw the minimum. Not sure if because of swim room though or some other reason. I'm hoping I can get one, technically I'm just short 35 gallons. LOL

Kinda like with the tangs, I'd really like one but will it harm the fish? I was hoping someone on here has/had one and could fill me in.

Strecthing the limits, I know......LOL

Id say go with it, max size is 10" and it doesn't mention anything about an overly active swimming style

I'm tempted to just do that, lol, I just don't want to jeopardize their health if they need a 6 foot tank like a tang. A few sites recommend 90 gallons as well so it looks like it's just a matter of opinion. I'm thinking of only like 7-8 fish in all anyways with limited rock so I think there'd be enough swim room.
