Agreed. However, less rock also means less filtration.

Almost all of humu-humu's fish are going to double in size within a few years. Only a few of Carey's fish will double.

But by all means, if they aren't stressed or fighting, then roll with it. And the same can be said to the guy with the two triggers and two puffers in a 55g - if they aren't fighting and aren't stressed, then they're good, right?

I'm not trying to start verbal fights lol, I'm just noticing people don't use the same standards for themselves as they set for others

I see your point. I'm not familiar with all the fish anyways, so my opinion isn't truth based, just trying to look at both sides of the conversation. And your right, I have done things I've told others not to, but I told them not to because I had to learn the dumb way by doing it, now I gotta deal with the problem. Where in Colorado are you?

I made mistakes too. I put 2 tangs in a 40g - Carey got me for that one lol. Bad, bad, bad on my part. And they both died But I did learn a valuable lesson

Oh..I'm up in Fort Collins (northern Colorado).

Looks nice what fish do you want to add? If they were small, imo youd be good!

IMHO i would have to agree that adding another fish to your tank would be pushing it...I actually think your a little overstocked as well ...
I used to think a 125 was huge and i could house anything i wanted in one but even with your current stock i think an upgrade is inevitable ..

Ohh a 280 or 300 is already being planned out for down the road. Just don't appreciate when comments are made on an uneducated or half-educated basis
