125 gallon salt water build

I will be picking up a 125 gallon established salt water tank the end of next week. I am planning to do fowlr in it after it is transported home and all tests are in check. So far the only thing planned for it is a yellow tang cuz my fiance loves em. I am trying to figure out what else to stock it with, and deff up for suggestions. I will be posting pics along the way.

Great! I love Yellow Tangs too, definitely one of my favorite fish of all time! What about some kind of Wrasse? There are so many kinds, and they are so beautiful!

Wrasses are a great idea for fowlr setup, as long as you have a cover over the tank as they are jumpers. Also consider an angel fish or maybe a flame hawk. they are pretty awesome.

for some more ideas you can check out Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums The site will tell you if its coral compatible, tank size recommendation and other useful information.

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

I love the big angels but it seems like all the ones I like should be in a 220 gallon or bigger tank. I will deff check out the flame hawk. Ty

I am going to be doing the same thing! Going from my 75 gal reef to a fowlr 125 gal. I have peaceful fish so I will be doing non aggressive. It really comes down to whether you want aggressive like lionfish, triggers or non aggressive like chromis , cardinals, and wrasses. Good luck ! It's a fun dilemma! Just make sure your tank is totally cycled before putting in the critters!

Oh you have an established tank, that's awesome! Takes out all of the tedious waiting!

if its a fowlr why not look at a nice starfish? +1 on the flame hawk.

wrasses are cool too. have you looked at any butterfly fish? or maybe a harlequin tusk?
