I will say also, that looking at this tank the rockscape and the corals are beautiful, so really, just like I do at home, I focus on what counts and the rest aren't really noticable.

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

I kno this sounds like an overkill but how bout a sump or wet dry so you can only have an overflow box and the return with the light over

if you do just say so, I want the truth.

I'm debating buying a nano remora from a member but if its just 2 inches smaller it will still look obtrusive to me.

The in tank tunze won't be much better though. It hangs on the tank by a magnet.

I'm just so unsure. I know I don't need a skimmer on this size tank but wanted to go all out. Maybe I can save some of this money for my 90g build?

What would you guys do?
Well... I thought it looked kinda crowded but didn't wanna be rude LOL
I really like ur set up, but just too much stuff hanging from the back. One big reason why I went with a sump

Trust me, i have given that all some thought. But I'll be moving ahead with the 90g build shortly and will need to concentrate on that ones drilled plumbing. LOL

I just wanna get the tank moved adn clean it up a bit. I've gotta keep a filter so there goes my pretty streamlined look. But I think it will be ok with just the filter. I'll be messing with the heater and everything tomorrow.

So my shopping day is now done.

I ended up buying a clump or macro algae for my 125g and a beautiful striped blenny for this tank. woohoo! It was very active in the store so I'm hoping he'll add some life to the tank.

He's still acclimating but heres the little guy! I hope to catch a better shot once he's in the tank, he's quite colorful.
