I have a ocellarius clown, fire fish, yellow tang, hippo tang, lawn mower Blenny and a watch men goby.. With 2 peppermint shrimp, 2 cleaner shrimp and a coral banded.. I also have a small brittle star with bout 6-7 huge turbos and about 15 hermit crabs.. I have a 125g reef tank.. Just a few pieces of coral.. Bubble coral, coral colt, Xenia, mushroom and green star polyp.. I have the ML c360 with 3 hang on biowheels (400,350.280) with a hang on reef octopus protein skimmer.. Sand bed about 2-3 inch and bout 150 lbs of live rock.. Can I add any big fish to my collection if not what smaller fish can I? My water quality stays good with scheduled water changes.. Any advice would be great.. An if you can see my tank in the photo where are some places certain coral will better.. Oh yea plus I have a one inch engineer goby that I haven't seen since I put him in the tankClick image for larger version

I think you could add another 1-2 small fish. Just remember that hippo is gonna get huge. Over a foot and the engineer as well. The yellow will hit about 7" too. So once the fish grow it won't look so empty.

I would add three lyretails, one male and two female. Great fish and very active usually.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

hmm not sure if you would get all the same wrasses or different ones. But I dont think they are a terrible idea. Just be sure your tank has a lid, screen cover or something, wrasses like to jump. I've lost a few to jumpers. But the fairy wrasses are very pretty.

True a cover is a must. Um what other fish that I think are cool lol. Hawks are interesting but they don't swim much. Yeah anthias or wrasses

me, I may be biased, but I dont think any tank is complete without a hawk fish of some kind. lol

I have a flame hawk in my 90g, a hawaiian hawk in my 40b and two in my 180g, a falco and an arc eye. Its that thing that they do with their eyes that gets me. They will perch and just watch your every move, just moving their eyes to do so. Its so creepy cool!
I would add a hawk and the anthias.
