Lets see your 40 Gallon breeder tanks!!

I have a 40 gallon breeder currently...just liverock and fish..no coral or anything. What fish do you all have in the tank? I currently have a cascade 1500 filter, aqua c protein skimmer with a maxi jet 1200 pump, cree led aquarium light with adjustable ballast and fish are 2 false percula clowns, 1 red stripe high fin goby, 1 6 line wrasse, 1 yellow tang( I know he will be to big for tank..I can trade him in), 1 eiblis angel, and lot of crabs and snails, 3 peppermint shrimp. If I trade the tang can I get anything else in there? I love the 40 gallon just doesnt seem like you can get the neat looking fish without having to spend huge money on a monster tank. Thanks guys!!

there are many choices for a 40b
as for the tang he will need re homing since they require big tanks

I have nothing in my 40b yet but feel free to follow the build it's linked in my signature below I will be adding to it shortly (Round 2sps)

my 37 g bowfront is featured on the home page if your looking for ideas for stock

37 gallon looks great!!! That does help me with stocking ideas. I am trading in the yellow tang friday. I will eventually get a nice big tank just take my time on it. I like my 40 breeder alot anyways.

I keep a red painted angler in my 40b reef. I think it is a great footprint for a smaller tank .
