What should I do with my tanks?

My new plan has not really worked out as I wanted. I recently purchased a 72g bowfront and have a 110g reef tank. Also I a few other tanks but they're not factoring into this decision.

The new 72G bowfront was to be a FO tank but the fish I want are going to get too big for it. I currently have a porcupine puffer and would like to get a clown trigger and a Harlequin Tusk. This summer I planned on upgrading my 110g to a 150 because of it's an odd shape and there are a fair number of scratches on it but don't know what to do now? Should I just sell the 72g and get another 150 for the three aggressive fish? I spend a ton of money on the tank/stand/canopy/lights/pumps etc... I guess I could use the lighting/pumps/etc on the next tank so I"d only be loosing money on the tank/stand/canopy.

*I would actually love to have a Queen Trigger, but I know they get huge!*

They are also one of the meanest fish on the planet.


The fish you mentioned would need a minimum of a 125 or 150, but could be housed as juveniles in a 72g for maybe close to a year. Depends on how big they are when you get them I guess. I don't know what I would do ina situation like that, I've never been known for getting rid of tanks, just aquiring them, LOL.

Porcupine is about 3.5-4 inches, I"m trying to get a tindy clown around 1-2 inches and all the Australian tusks I see are a minimum of 4 inches. Maybe I'll just keep them in the 72 for a while and then upgrade that tank next year?

LOL, yeah I would love to add another tank but my 6 already take sooo much time just with maintance Don't know what to do!? Maybe I'll get rid of a couple of the smaller tanks and then buy a 125 for these agressive fish?
