Imagine a porous sheet hanging vertically with water running down it rapidly and modest lighting on it...it grows a short, tough " turf-like" algae that not only eats up excess nutrients like crazy but also eats trates. Im excited because its only gonna cost about 10 bucks to build and within a month or so should completely replace my skimmer

Yeah. General rule (and it's not even 100%) is different colors and body shapes. Of course there is always an exception to the rule on both sides. But if they are introduced at the same time it will lessen the chance of aggression towards each other. There will still be a few days that they might bicker as they try to claim dominance to the tank though

The 40: 5 fish
The 125: a whale

There's your limits

ok off work and both hands work. this is the maybe list to pick and choose from for the maybe 125 cichlid to sw change.
-2 anglers, one wart skin and one red orange angler
-cubicus box fish (i read that they are potentially deadly to tank mates so that one may be off the list)
-red diana hogfish
-voltron lion or
-radiata lion
-bluehead wrasse
-vrolik's wrasse
-marine batta
-lyretail hogfish
-harlaquin tusk aussy type. this is a must for me
-purple tang
-powder blue tang
-papuan tedy puffer
-bellus angel fish
-lamarck's angel
-little spinefoot
-two-line monocle bream
-scott's fairy wrasse
-midnight arothron puffer

this is a list to pick and choose from. not all of them. im sure a lot will be removed once sweety pie sees the price of them. but this is all just hypothetical. sorry i couldnt find any whales i liked.

I like the hump backs. They make a nice addition to a reef tank. Lol, I like it! And box fish give off a poison when they die... So you have to make sure they don't die.

yeah, the cuicus box fish looks cool but that whole toxic poison thing.... calls for expert only, and i am far from that.
