I would not get the long horn cowfish. They get big and scan release toxin. Triggerfish can be aggressive and have a high bioload. The fish with the high fin sounds like a species of jack knife fish. Highly predatory. Any eels would try to eat smaller fish. I would advise getting a lemon peel angelfish orang of the more peaceful centropygne angelfish. For the bottom, a pistol shrimp with a watchman goby would be neat.

I believe the fish with the horn was A unicorn naso which get huge. Definitely to big for a 120. I agree with everything betta owner said

The black and white stripes could be the moorish idol? That also wouldn't fit in your tank and are notoriously hard to keep. Unfortunately most of those awesome big fish you see in public aquariums need huge tanks and aren't often found in home aquariums. Unless you are fortunate like some to keep 1000g plus tanks

It's kind of a disappointment that none of those would work haha. The longhorn cowfish we saw was the size of a dollar, I was kinda hoping it would stay small. It was really cute.

So far;
A yellow tank
Clownfish x 2
A lemon peel


I put my sand in last night, and it made about a 2-2"" sand bed. Which is a little higher then a wanted. Does anyone have suggestions for sand sifters? Or something that will move the sand quiet often? It's super fine sand, so it won't hurt them.

I think it was the moorish fish, but the Heniochus Black & White Butterflyfish looks similar, the site you guys gave me says 125gallons, but is there anyway it could go in my tank because the sump...?

I think a heniochus may be ok in your tank but no moorish idol

Yeah I want the moorish idol, but obviously can't have it. So I was hoping I could substitute it with the other one.
