There are some really awesome stores in orlando, I try to get out there at least once a month. I find some really neat stuff and sometimes things I can't find near me. Try a google search next time you get to that area again, aquaria studio in orlando is beyond great! all rimless dispalys with led's and top notch staff and stock.

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

Will do! If you are ever in the south you have to go to some of the LFS in Miami area- great selections there. Plus- I have a business license so I can get into the wholesalers. Yeah- I spent a little up front on the license but I save a lot more in the end

Well, I saw the tank. I wish ppl would learn their tank sizes before the post them... It was a 125g. They wanted 250 for it. I measured, calculated the dimension (lxwxh/231) and came up with 125g. The stand was nice, aquarium was thick, seals looked good, I offered 200. Well, needless to say, they accepted! I pick it up tomorrow!!!

IMO, I say yes. LA says 180g, but I personally think you would be ok.

Well it says 180 on live aquaria. Perhaps because they need the turnaround room as they get older. Maybe if you have a lot of caves and have a space in the back of the tank to swim as well it would do alright????

Bleach? U sure? Won't that be an issue if I accidentally leave some in there? No promises of being able to rinse it all out.
