I have now tested a few times, and I think I am close to where I need to be.

Thanks!

Just had a Tang question. As some of you know, I really, really like Tangs, I know that three is the most for a 125g, but If I understocked as far as other smaller fish go, would a 4th smaller (probably Bristletooth) Tang be ok? If not that is DEFINITELY a ok, just figured I would check . In the end, I definitely want the best for the fish. I didn't know if I could substitute a few smaller fish for a larger one (Tang).

I know that this probably isn't a good idea, but I figured I would run it buy you all anyway.


Thank you very much! I appreciate all of you you following!

Oops, also forgot to update on some progress last night!

I moved over all of the rock that I plan on moving from my 55g to my 125g. I am hoping that will help make the cycle go pretty quickly.

I other news, I got the right attachment for my pump, but now I am having a leak around where my check valve is. Hopefully we can get that fixed soon.

Thank you very much for following!

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

Thanks!

What do you think about the Tangs? Is three the limit with a few other smaller fish included, or is it just the limit due to overall space in the tank? I would be willing to only add 1-2 smaller fish if a 4th Tang was practical. If it was ok then the Tang list would probably be, my Blue Hippo, Scopas, Yellow, and a small Bristletooth. I am pretty sure this won't work out, but I just wanted to check. Thanks and sorry if this sounds extremely confusing, lol.

Hmm the scopas gets pretty big doesnt he? I hate to say it but I think between the blue and the scopas you might be good with just the 3 tangs. I was also thinking of adding a fourth to mine but figured I'd stay on the safe side and stay at 3, especially with the hippo tang, they probably should be in a 180 LOL.

After having my 3 tangs for several months I think 3 is the magic number. But it also allows you to have more swimmy fish for your tank. Four tangs and 2 or 3 smaller fish, in my opinion anyways, wouldn't make your tank that active. I personally like seeing lots of activity with fish swimming all over.

What else do you have in mind as far as fish?

Thanks! I will stick with the three then.

As far as other fish I definitely want some Wrasses. I also LOVE this Angelfish! It is cool looking and reef safe!

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Lamarck's Angelfish
I like the Red Head Solon Fairy Wrasse, McCosker's Flasher Wrasse, and the Linespot Flasher Wrasse. I really like all Wrasses though, lol. Those are just a few of my favorites!

I had considered that lamarck angle for my 125g but was still paranoid it woudnt be reef safe so I never got one. LOL I'm such a wimp sometimes.

The wrasses sound cool, those 3 I like alot too. The mccosker might be next on my stocking list, I'm still holding out for that red tang to come back in stock.

I hope that Red Tang comes in soon for you! After you add the Wrasses and the Tang, is that it for the 90g, or do you still have some more fish in mind?

If the Angel eats the corals, I will just have to set up a FOWLR, darn. LOL.
