as for my stock list, i need to do some more reading on compatibility but i'm thinking a couple clowns, a blue tang, i really want a naso, and maybe some chromis. i've been keeping track of neat fish that i find on the web but i think i need to get closer to that point before i decide for sure.

here is an update pic, not sure if i like the rock setup yet.
Looks good! What are the dimensions of your tank?

Looks like its coming along really nice. I would do a 5 to 6 inch deep sand bed if possible.

Coming along great. Hey I know you were saying you wanted to get a couple of tangs, but they really need at least a 6' tank. Usually at least a 125 or larger. Sorry to be the "tang police," but a 6' would be best. Still lots of options for your tank though. Check out liveaquaria.com and see what they are.

Absolutely, and please don't miss understand, I'm not trying to be rude. I have made the same mistake and have lost fish. I just wish I would have asked before not asked why.

Some cool ones I would recommend are foxface, maybe a dwarf angel, or some cardinals. Your not that limited so have fun and good hunting. Looking forward to seeing your tank flourish!
