Between my 30 and 75g tank all I have is a tobacco basslet and a maroon/gold strip clown.. I can always take fish from my DT and put then in those.. Like would like to keep my hippo tang, shark, hawk fish, and YT in my DT and move the smaller fish.. Until I get my shark.. I can't find any info about what I can house with the shark beside tangs and stingrays and I don't want them until I get a bigger tank

Your 210 will be stocked with just the shark a d tangs IMO. Sharks have huge bioloads. I hope that 210 is gonna be 3 feet wide At least

Hey bribo.. I've seen people with shark in a 125g w/ porcupine puffer and a stingray and had then for about a year.. He about to get rid of his shark tho.. Do you tank I should start over and build my 125g around my shark..? I would like to keep my betta in there also.. I have someone that will by my tangs from me.. And I can put my hawkish in my 75 with all my chromis and firefish.. Do you think that would be a good idea..?

My opinion is that you are fine without the shark egg. I kept three tangs in my 125g for several years before i went to the 180g. I had a blue, yellow and tomini.

That shark egg is gonna hatch into all sorts of issues.

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

Hello everyone. I have a 125g tank. I had a 75g and just got my 125g and now im wanting to change some things up until my 210g is finished being built (maybe at the beginning of the year). @ the moment i just have a YT 4in, long nose hawk 3in, cleaner wrasse, firefish, mardarin goby 1in, small marine betta 1.5in and a engineer goby 4in. the thing is, is that i jus added a shark egg that i got and it has about a month to hatch. i was now trying to build my tank around my shark. i have a 30g tank which i just have a maroon gold strip in so i could put some of the other things into if need be.. what do you guys and gals think should be my 1st move on if i want success in my situation? then you could give me your 2nd,3rd move after that. i really want to keep this shark.. thanks in advance.. i added a few pics of when i had it as a coral tank and how i have it now..

As I said before, a shark tank should be round. And since you want opinions, here ya go.
1 Lose the shark !!! It needs much more now after it hatches for it to live a long and prosperous life.
2 Do more research and less impulse buys. You'll get further with less headaches.
3 Don't create multiple threads on the same issues. It will drive many people crazy. Including yourself.

Also, since you have a few threads going with roughly the same items, your pics may be on one of those because they're not here.
