I know the 160g buckets are my max as far as carrying stuff so i assume the box would weigh even more. lol

I would recommend the buckets though, I'm only going with the box cause I'm gonna go through half of it right off and the rest I can store in an old I/O bucket. They make great water change buckets!

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

yeah that garbage can idea is a winner in my book, and i had the same idea with a pump... although I may put mine on a stand to be higher than the fish tank so i can have it siphon through

If you don't use it quick enough though I bet it will harden and become unstable. It will absorb moisture too I'd think. Unless of course you put it into an airtight container.

So this is the centerpiece fish for my 125g

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Caribbean Tang

You all know what a yellow tang looks like and I like these for my schooling fish
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Reef Aquariums: Lyretail Anthias Fish.

I was thinking 4 females and 1 male.

Any other suggestions? I'm not sure how my stocking list looks for a 125g. I figure I gotta take a break from all the technical parts of this build and go back for a minute to the best part- STOCKING. LOL

What do you guys think? Will adding 2 tangs and a handful of anthias push me over?
