125 is way too small for a 3.5 foot shark. That shark will be half the length of the tank itself.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Marbled Bamboo Cat Shark that it? If so, it will easily outgrow a 125g in 2-3yrs. if cared for properly.

The only shark that usually doesn't exceed 24" is a Coral cat shark.

The hippo will be fine but definitely not the Yellow tang. It's got a mouth/beak like 1-2" long.

If you really want to keep a shark for a longer time in a 125 why not get a marbled catshark or coral catshark? I am speaking of the atelomycterus sharks. Spelled something like that lol.
