I know, it says they can't be kept in groups though. :-( That was my first idea for a schooling fish. lol

How many fish is too many fish in a 125 kelsey? I need to know if I'm overstocking in my plans

Yah you would have to get a mated pair I guess if anything and I don't think thats an option haha, one is still awesome. What is your stocking list so far (including fish you already have pls)?? I know I've read it once on here but now I can't find it again lol

If you get a small schooling fish that looks fine to me... but I probably overstock :p

I just plugged it all into aquadvisor thing and it says 95% stocked. I knew it would be tight

Yah I'd say your at your max there, if you are keeping up with your weekly water changes you might be fine with that list (which you are). The 4-5 schooling fish are kind of iffy but I think if everything gets along and you are keeping the water conditions great than it should be okay. I know all these fish will happen over a long period of time so who knows, you might feel complete after getting the 10 fish.

I saw on the last page you were looking at the anthias for the schooling fish, I think they are a great idea. Very pretty fish, I am looking to add some to our large tank again (we lost our others awhile back).

I love how they look, both male and female. I was thinking them or maybe darfish as the schoolers....but they would most likely be awhile off. Then again I'm not adding the mandarin for awhile either. And the filefish is a wish fish. so I'll prob end up with less fish in the end....
