Yea, I figure half the price of new is a deal for anyone looking. Just make sure you type out what you paid for everything, and maybe even include links to the new components.

As for the 90 and a centerpiece fish, what all is in there currently?

The 90g has a big eye squirrel fish, blue eyed tang, banana wrasse, flame hawk and an engineer goby. Two turbo snails that are like 3+ years old too. Thats it.

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

How about a trigger? Surely you can't keep it forever, but maybe for a couple years....And if you buy one that's allegedly reef safe you can toss him in the 180 at some point.

I wasnt aware of a trigger that was reef safe....I am kinda scared to think of one though, they have never really showed up on my radar. lol My best friend had on, a niger, and hers was so nasty. he would try to bite your finger through the glass. lol

What kind of trigger do you think might work? A puffer is still out of the question I assume right? Keep in mind this tank is populated by kinda nasty fish now. The banana wrasse and tang are very mean.....

I think Blue Jaws are as reef safe as triggers get. I've seen people pull it off. Even that Mr Saltwater guy had a pair in one of his previous tanks.

Well, I hear blue jaws, pink tails and nigers in my travels...I suppose in the end it's up to the fish.

I've heard the same with Niger Triggers too. Those and Pink Tails get a lot bigger, so I was figuring would outgrow that tank faster.

Pink tails are kinda pricey arent they? I was trigger shopping with a friend once and recall thinking it was a bit high for a fish. lol

So you think maybe a blue jaw? I will start scoping out who has what and see if they look like a good fit. I assume I wouldnt want to get a tiny one but getting a larger one I fear might end up like the wrasse that just passed. He was huge when I got him so I only enjoyed his company for a couple years. I worry about the other fish harassing him as well....I had thought of foxfaces since they have a defense mechanism and might be left alone. But no idea how a trigger would react. I know that friend of mine with the trigger couldnt put any fish in her tank let alone her hand for cleaning. I would block the trigger with a HUGE net so she could get into the tank when needed. lol

Again, it depends on the fish. As for the traditional one spot foxface, I have never seen one that defended itself with spines....even the one in the gym tank I maintain which is around 5" and been with his tank mates since the beginning get bullied regularly.
If it's a rabbit, I prefer one of these anyway-

I had a Blue Jaw years ago and just added one to my 240g a couple weeks ago. The old one never had issues with tankmates (Annularis Angel, Foxface, Green a Bird Wrasse, Banana Wrasse, Flame Hawk, Threadfin Snapper). My new one is still kinda timid, but staying out in the open more every day. It only has a Yelliw Tang and Longnose Hawk with it, so not much to worry about.

I like the Foxface/Rabbitfish idea too.
