When the LFS tell me something to buy I say "hmm" but inside of me I'm saying "lalalalala I'm not listening, don't waste your breath". When I go to the LFS I already know exactly what I want, lol.

I usually know exactly what i want. it's so really cute fish that get me everytime. After some chopping today i think I have updated my to buy list:

still want the caribbean blue tang, supposed to be in tomorrow so we'll see
instead of a school of anthias i think I'm gonna go with blue green chromies. Like alot of them. Then i may add a trio of bartletss anthias and maybe a squareback anthias. I figure I can get a better school of fish cheaper with the chromies and they are durable fish it seems.

I have 2 chromis in my 125. They are the only original 2 left from when I bought the tank. They must be pretty hard cuz as you know, that tank has been through a lot.

Once the Chromis realize they have no natural enemies in the tank they will start fighting amongst themselves .They are actually a mean fish.

Since I'm in a chatty mood I thought I'd share some of my recent thoughts on this new 125g.

First off, I love the Kole Tang. he is the most active fish ever, even more so than the yellow tang. If you have the tank for a Kole I highly recommend one.
As far as my overflow issues I have to say the CPR continous overflow is by far one of the best inventions EVER. No priming no issues at all. And keep in mind this is coming from an absolute noob as far as overflows and sumps.

I've also changed my mind on my tang stocking. I don't think I want the timini anymore, if I do go for a 4th tang i might like the mimic half black one at LA.

About the stocking.....LOL

I want to add the chromis, maybe like 8 of them. I was told that was a good starting number. I also fell in love with the bartlett anthias's I saw yesterday so I may go with 3-4 of those. As far as anthias I also wanted one male squareback one, it was something else in the tank I saw at my LFS yesterday.

I know that was alot to read but wanted to share.

Any thoughts on my new stocking ideas? Are the chromis really gonna be that big of a problem? From what I've heard they are pretty mellow kinda anyways....

It was alot of work and money. But I just sit in front of the tank having a smoke and watching. I do it for hours a day. I can't wait to get some more active fish.

I've also noticed now in the big tank my royal gramma actually swims around, before in the 55g you never saw her for days sometimes as she hid in the rocks. Or it could be the two new fish that are super active that drew her out.

I'll be doing the bulk stocking very soon and then it might be a fish here or there. I only have a couple I'd like but all depends on the tank. I'm aiming for a "peaceful" tank. So far the only semi aggressive fish is the yellow tang and he's a sweetheart. lol

See, I'm too chatty today. Sorry guys
