All I got too say is your either have a really good job or a rich daddy for all the $$$ you seem to throw away. I mean the eels alone are probably pushing at least $500+ at a very low estimate, and the other critters you've gotten aren't cheap.
I'm surprised the eels don't go after the lobster or the crabs considering crustaceans are one of morays favorite dishes.

Actually the eels are cheap out here, since they are all locally caught.. Most I spent was $40 for the zebra.. The others were between $20-$30.. Panther and snapper was $24.. Angler was $20.. reef lobster and anemone crab, both under $20.. Humu was $12 off of craigslist.. Puffer was the most expensive at $150.. Pretty much everything in my tank was locally caught by the LFS, with the exception of the panther and snapper..

OK, I'm jealous now. Those eels would cost me anywhere from about $20 for a snowflake up to well over $100 for some of the others.

Puffers aren't supposed to eat fish. They can get fatty liver disease. Stick to shrimp, squid, clam, etc. either way, nice looking puffer.

Okay. On the edge as towards size for these type of grown fish IMO.

Yeah, it's so hit or miss with the fish prices here.. Some are super cheap like the eels.. Yellow tangs are between 10-16 depending on the size.. My LFS often has sales on them for $8 a piece.. The catch is we can't get a lot of things.. No sharks, rays, or lionfishes.. No inverts can be imported or corals..

It is a 125.. When I bought it on CL, it was listed as a 180.. I'm working on my plywood tank as we speak.. I have the frame built, I'm currently pricing glass at different places trying to find the best deal.. The frame is 9x4x2.5.. I'll post pictures when I get home..
