Nice choices! You stole my whitetail tang idea LOL. I've pretty much decided to get 2 females for my male squareback, those fish are actually pretty large so I figure 2 females should do it for me. So yeah, I tghink you'll have plenty of room. What other tangs are you considering?

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

Other than those two, I was considering the Scopas.
Sorry about taking your idea, lol, I saw it in your thread, and I though it was a beautiful fish!

Isn't it though? I feel I MUST have one now. LOL I'm gonna ask for one for my birthday in 2 weeks. I'm on the email list on live aquaria for one so hopefully they come back in stock soon.

Scopas is a nice tang too, I had entertained the idea when i was picking my tangs out, I've never seen a big one though, they are always so very tiny I didn't think that it would survive.

So you have 2 tangs on your wish list, are you gonna go with only two or going for 3? I think 3 is a perfect number for a 125g, leaves enough room for other fish and yet you get to have a few tangs.

Are you going to move your other fish from your smaller tank to the 125g or keep them both running?

Yep, I will have three. I will move my poor Blue Hippo from my 55g (he came with the tank when we bought it).
I also plan on keeping the 34g running. However, the 55g will be used as a QT (I think the new Tangs will like that).

Happy early birthday!

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?)

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!
I like the whitetail tang. I'd say do three females and one male of the wrasse. With the anthias, it says that a bright tank (reef tank) will fade their colors so why not look at the blue reef chromis???

I loved having my 55g as a qt, made life so much easier. LOL

And thanks for the b-day wishes Hopefully I get some good stuff this year hehe...

What are you gonna keep in the 34g? Just what you have?

Do you have the 125g filled up yet btw? I'm anticipating some action today on that build!

My squareback stays in the shadows part of the day, hasn't faded yet. I added two frag racks a few weeks ago and the anthias AND the tangs seem to like to hang out underneath them. I've heard also that the blue reef chromis can fade too but mine havent yet. Still bright blue.
