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

Awesome pictures, the tank looks great! Also, congrats on your decisions of future tanks! I can't wait to see their builds!

My monti is growing like a weed, you can actually see it grow day by day it seems. I havent had to take down the overflow, i have replaced the two sponge prefilters in it though, the originals were getting nasty.

I got a long sponge from my lfs and cut it in half. They also sell the replacement sponges at marinedepot.com. I think if placed well a monti would look pretty good in your tank. It's supposed to encrust and layer as it grows so it could be spectacular in a year or two.

You betcha, I'll be on new build threads so fast...like always!

True... But watching the walking dead and posting on threads is hard to do.
