That is something worth worrying about. LOL If it looks like it is a main support, don't cut it. Take a picture of it and post it and we can help you decide. Chance to me to pay you back a bit for all the help you have given me over the past 2 months.

+1 pics on your work that your not comfortable with, it may be slower taking pics for a step by step, but if your uncertain its a lot of eyes one watching out for you!

and it will help out for everyone else that my have the same questions and concerns.

I'm planning it out in my head still, getting some understanding of it all. Once I get it on a stand I think it will come together for me.

And you should know by now I post pictures of EVERYTHING! LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So while I wait for my stand and the other setup stuff I figured I'd start thinking about stocking the tank.

It can be a full covered tank so I was thinking of getting a wrasse. I also would love to have some pygmy angels since I can't now. Can you mix angels? I was liking the lemonpeel and the coral beauty. BUT I am also getting fascinated by eels. I'd like to have a more aggressive tank that anything I have now and fish I can't have now. I also was thinking a butterfly fish of some kind, even though I know they are difficult to feed.

Any suggestions? Or comments on what I have in mind?

I don't want puffers or any other venomous types, like foxfaces. Just different and cool colorful fish.

Have at it guys, I know you all will come up with a ton of suggestions!

Heading back to liveaquaria to research some more.

For the bulkheads I lube the seals with a little petroleum jelly works like a charm. Just one thing with bulkheads dont stress them lateraly.

A suggestion for the wrasse would be a Harlequin Tuskfish. Those guys are really cool

I was looking at the tusks and they are also on the list. A little pricey but very cool. I wanted a grouper but 90g isnt nearly enough space for one. :-(

I have a lemonpeel! It is a very nice fish. You may be able to get away with two angels only if you added them at the same time.

Well thats good news. I think i willgo with two angels. Now to decide on the other inhabitants.

Would a butterfly be really that hard to keep? I only know from what I hear here and research and it seems they dont' immediately eat. I've been down that road before with my scooter and my mandarin.
