When you say "except for the Sailfins" is this because of their size?

Happy Reefing,

Yes, they get fairly large and most standard 125g's don't facilitate their swimming movements well due to the width. If you HAD to purchase a sailfin, the Zebrasoma desjardinii can hold its own better than Z. veliferum. Just my opinion.
