Umm oops.

I just bought a fish for the 125g. The guy said one would be fine and to move my livestock over slowly. LOL All 5 fish.

I also got a new addition for the cube!

Woot!

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

i agree slow and steady wins the race

I just finished up acclimation, had two different tanks to go back and forth between.

I got a red striped sleeper goby for the 29g cube and yes, I did it, I got my first Tang!!!! A yellow eyed Kole tang. I know they are the tang of choice for smaller tanks but I really wanted one anyways. So I guess I will have 3 tangs in all when it's done.

here's the best shots I could get, the tang is in hiding. She keeps poking her head out lol. The goby is already eating and seems very happy. woot woot!

This goby would fit in your tank I bet Wolf. It grows to about 2 inches the guy said. I still have to find some more information on him, no sites have one listed.

yes, the wait is over!! My first tang. She's so pretty, as soon as I saw her I knew it was fate. She's also pretty small too so she can grow up with my other fish.

The only thing is, well, I guess I gotta say it, I got both fish at petco. I've never gotten sw fish there before, I was just there to get a new valve for my water changer hose and was looking around. lol I initially was gonna pick out some FW fish but got toally derailed by the Tang.

You guys think the fish will be ok? Like I said, never got sw at a chain store before. I will say that the guy who works there is pretty good. He's in school for marine biology and he's like 40 something so he's not some punk kid. ( no offense to any punk kids reading) Their fish always look healthy and he moves quite a few. They do have the sad betta's in a cup though and they look sickly. I hope I made a good call here...
