So many cool fish you can go with. Of course I have my favorites, like the yellow tang, blue tang and the squareback anthias. A midas blenny is also a cool one to add.

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

Definitely. My Blue Hippo is going to be very happy! As for as my Tangs go, I think I still would like to add a Scopas and Yellow. My LFS always has Yellows, so that shouldn't be a problem. They can order whatever I want too, so that makes me happy, lol. The Midas seems like a really awesome fish, they seem to be more of a swimmer kind of fish than other blennies that always sit on the rocks. I really like the Squareback too, I hope to get some kind of Anthias for this tank. I just hope that I don't have any feeding issues.

I also really want a Mandarin, probably an ORA. I like both kinds that ORA breeds, so I will probably get whichever one I see first, lol. That is after a few months of establishing pods in my fuge.

Do you guys have any water pump recommendations? I am looking for something of good quality, but not high price.

Thank you.

Also, I have another pump qestion.

Would I get two pumps that their rates equal the size of my tank when put together, or would I buy two pumps that are rated for 125g?

yep, i'm using 2 1400's and am generally pleased with them. I'm thinking of adding 2 750's to the back wall though, maybe after I get my controller so I can run a 4 pump wavemaker.
