Yeah I am going to wait till the cycle is completely done b4 I add fish. The tank is going to be a reef. I'm thinking some Xenia green star polyp, leather coral, Hammer coral and some other. As far as the cycle stuff I haven't really used it. I only used half.... So no tang u say? I know they need lots of horizontal room to swim. I was hoping a 4ft tank would be enough.

You would get more responses if you post it in the appropriate section. Post it in the fw identification section.

If you put a tang in a four foot tank the tang police will be on you like white on rice, lol. Look into some colorful blennies, you may like a midas. I have one, beautiful fish.

My XMAS gift from my wife this year is a 180, I can't wait. Until then, my 65 will have to suffice.

Looks like I'll have to wait. Lol yeah my plan is to have a tank with lots of fish that have lots of personality I don't want it to be boring. I don't know if u would know the answer or not but.... I know a pistol shrimp needs a pretty good size sand bed to dig it's hole. Is 2 1/2 in deep good enough or should I add some more to make it 4 in deep?

I have no experience with the pistols, so I couldn't say. I have a 3-4 inch sand bed in my fowlr tank.

Ok. I am thinking on adding more sugar size sand to my tank. Prob 30 lbs more. Right now it is a mix of 40 lbs of live sand med size. 20lbs of sugar size sand and 10 lbs of crushed up crushed coral.( I had some crushed coral that I put into a pillow case and smashed with a hammer to it was very small. About the size of the med live sand)
