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

Unfortunately, I had to put the rock in a garbage pale because the tank isn't setup yet. I hope to setup the tank tomorrow.


Thanks!

OK! So here is the update for this evening.

I have some of the equipment put together, and I hope to have everything put together by tonight. I also want to start/ or finish putting in my water and sand. I will probably put in my rock sometime tomorrow or Sunday. I know this sounds a little ambitious but I am up for the challenge!

Thanks everyone for following! I really do appreciate it!

Here is a photo of my rock and my sump.

Carey, any tips for fitting the skimmer? Is it ok if it is not completely flat on the bottom (meaning that it is sticking up a little bit)? Thanks!

Flip the skimmer around. Have the intake near the filter sock, it will fit in there sideways but barely.

Here is a rough outline of a possible stocklist.
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...90&pcatid=2890
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Spotted Bristletooth Tang, Ctenochaetus truncatus OR
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: White Tail Bristletooth Tang, Ctenochaetus flavicauda
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Reef Aquariums: Royal Gramma Basslet
Squareback Anthias (Could I have three females, and then one male?)
http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...381&pcatid=381

What do you all think? This is by no means final, just an outline. Also, down the road I would like to add an ORA Mandarin to the tank.

Thanks!
Suggestions are welcome!
