Very nice. Assuming you got a good deal? Three tangs? Adventurous soul.

Tangs are pretty aggressive towards each other. Especially if they have the same body shape. I currently have 2. A Naso and a Powder Blue. The Naso is pretty laid back but the Powder Blue is pretty belligerent. I don't think I'd do four in a 125g. Also, minimum tank size is 180g for a Blue Hippo. When in doubt, check liveaquaria.com. Good luck!

A blue hippo is fine in a 125. Only big guys need 180s. That being said 4 tangs in a 125 is a lot.

Very nice tank and a great deal too. Yeah about those tangs, less is more. There are only a few tangs that I can think of that are not tang aggressive, like an orange shoulder for example. It may work for you but be careful, tangs can fight to the death.

What exactly did you get for $500? I see stand, hood, lights, tank, substrate, and fish. Anything else?

A puffer should never look skinny or have a sunken tummy. The pic is either at a bad shot or infested with internal parasite.
