It came with the stock bulbs but I just recently added ATI bulbs. 6 aquablue specials, 4 blue plus's and 2 purple plus's. I'm not very happy with the purple bulbs as it makes my tank look too purple, I have way too much coralline algae LOL.

Side note: After looking at the new fish and the ones already in the tank I think I can probably add some more livestock. I was thinking 2 medium sized fish....maybe two female anthias to go with my male? I really think I want a flame hawk in there too but from what I've read they are mostly perchers so that wouldn't "fill" up the tank very much. LOL

Any ideas guys?

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

Do the females and flame for it's personality! What site did you buy the bulbs from? I know 72" are hard to come by.

It takes 12 36" bulbs. Alot easier and cheaper than getting 60" bulbs so I'm happy about that.

Today is Friday so if I see a flame hawk I might be tempted to purchase it. I don't have a qt tank though as I started breaking down the 55g last night.

I know the hawk can fit just wondering if two more anthias would be too too much. The females I don't think will get as large as the male thankfully but it's just a thought I had while watching the fish swim around last night. There's not much more fish wise that i want really, I was also thinking a sifting diamond back goby but not sure on that....

It's a 125g, I would go for it. They will school and get your tangs out more. I don't see you having to much if you put them in.. IMO

+1 on the flame hawk. love mine. and a tough litte guy!!! the anthias would be cool too. i just dont know much about live stock to recommend any.

you could get a magnificent foxface. a little pricey but neat looking fish.

It was shopping day for me! Yay! I only got one thing, a pagoda cup coral. It's floating in tank now and I will take some pictures in a bit. It's a rather large specimen too which is a nice bonus. Almost bought a clam but I will wait for the new lights on my 20g rimless before I get one I think.

I looked at the foxface but the venom thing turned me off of them. lol

Yep, I'm paranoid and scared, no issue there. LOL I have a fangtooth blenny and I'm always super careful when I'm in that tank...hehe

Here is a picture of my new coral, looks much more colorful under my lights than it did in the store, I didn't notice how much pink/purple there was in it




And one more shot of the chromis, they are just so cool!!
