Theres always contradiction on the internet as far as fish. I;ve seen 20g recommended for a blue tang somewhere. lol

I'm not 100% on the Tusk, gonna try to play it by ear and see how the tank adapts to the other fish. I would like to have it as my centerpiece fish pretty much. Only the angel and the butterfly are gonna get any size to them, kinda hoping a 4 foot tank will be enough for what I have planned.

That's real nice to hear.

I always doubt myself and probably shouldnt as much, but that's maybe why I have had some success with my tanks and stocking so far. When the 55g was my biggest SW I was so tempted to get a yellow tang like you wouldnt believe. Just a small one mind you, but I almost did it. I;m really glad I waited now and trusted my gut on that one. lol

My gut tells me a tusk would do fine in the 90g as long as I don't go crazy with the rock work. I really would like to make a tall structure out of it but I was checking out my base rock today and not looking good for that.
:-(

It's gonna be weird not having two tons of rock in a tank. lol I'll be pushing over 250lbs in the 125g. I was thinking maybe using about 150 lbs of rock at most. That should leave plenty of room for the fish and hiding spots for others.

i know your sump is a wet dry correct. ive read people keeping a small about of lr in the dt just for aesthetics and keeping the rest in the sump for the purpose of what ever live rock does for saltwater.

I'm gonna try to run just the wet/dry with no rock and the bio balls and see if I can keep the nitrates under control. Like a whole new world this wet/dry thing lol
