Finally decided - 125 gallon tank

I will be getting a 125 (72" x 18" x 22") with 2 overflows. I will probably get a 30 gallon sump with it.

The fish I want are

ANY type of Tang, they really fascinate me
A Midas Blenny
A pair of Anthia's
1 Royal Gramma Basslet
6 Chromis
A pair of Clown fish? 1 if that wont work
A Fox fish


I am also going to have blue legged hermit crabs and snails so they must be compatible too.
Would anything not work? Am I understocked? Overstocked?

If you like tangs so much how about getting more than one. I have three in my 125. You might have to drop some of your other choices. Here are my three.

I think that could work. There's only two "big" fish in that list, so I'd almost consider adding another larger fish...maybe a dwarf angel of some kind. Not sure about the colorful school idea...I'm trying to imagine small, colorful fish that school. More Chromis would create a cool group that will likely stay close to one another.

My experience with Chromis is you can buy 12 and you will always end up with 1.
