I would add the Eel, lion, picasso, and the puffer. Panther groupers get huge, and really need a 180. I have seen them full grown and trust me they don't really fit in a 125. Best of luck with your new tank!

Keep the stocking rule in mind "5 gal. = 1 in. of adult fish" ... meaning you can only handle 25 in. of adult fish. The angel alone reaches 15 in.... Sorry for the lecture. I think it would be best to eliminate about half of your fish. HTH

ah yes, the world of SW fish keeping. A HUGE tank......2 fish.

I have heard that you can maybe push it a bit if you use a great deal of filtration.

(I don't know how accurate that is. Is this true?)

hmm 5 gal=1 inch of fish, so with a 125 gallon tank and a 75 gallon sump it makes it a whole new ball game huh.

I dont know how a sump would factor into it. The 1 inch of fish is minus the tail. so that helps a bit.

I myself will be breaking the rule by a full 5 inches. :|

IME, (not my experience at home as you see by my sig- but my experience working in a LFS with the saltwater display tanks and helping with my friends' SW tanks) the more filtration you have does mean you can bend the fish rule a bit. Especially if they're not overly territorial or agressive towards their tankmates.
