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

Yep, that is a tailspot. He mostly perches so he is ok for now in the 8g but he will be moved to a larger tank after I play musical tanks.

My plan is to take down the 125g, the 60 rimless and the biocube. Most of the fish will go into the 180g though along with the new fish I ordered.

I will also hopefully be putting up another medium sized tank for the fish that cant go into the 180g like the 2nd pair of clowns and the itty bitty sailfin blenny. I was thinking a 57 rimless but am also looking at the nuvo 24g super long tank, its 3 feet long! lol

ALso setup a rock smashing station in the garage and will crack apart some of the coral rocks from the 125g that are infested with aipastia. I just moved the wp40 to the 180g just now and am buying a second from a guy from my reef club so that should be good.
The only other piece of equipment I am thinking about is a bio-pellet reactor. Now would be the time to add it too so I can reap all the benefits.
A reactor worked for a bit on my 60g but it got clogged really easily so I bailed on it a few months in. What do you guys think, any of you run a larger biopellet reactor and if so does it work?

I'm liking the phosguard in my reactor. Don't know anything about biopellet reactors.

Yeah, the biopellets will also help with phosphates too so I figured it might be worth another try. Found a biomaxx reactor with pellets for like $150. So not too terrribly expensive
