What Would you Put in a 265g? (SW)

What Would you Put in a 265g? (SW). I may upgrade someday, and I was thinking of something along these lines.

Ok, now I see. LOL With a tank like that I would bet the possibilities are endless. Since I am stuck with my itty bitty 45 I will let the big guys chime in.

I like that idea although it is hard to argue against tangs. When my tank was FW I wanted to do nothing but 20 or 30 Neons and watch them do figure eights all day but my wife wouldn't let me. LOL

Come to think of it, I might put gas in it. The way prices are going it could be worth a fortune in a month or two.

Definitely a group of anthias, maybe six or so. Then I'd get a few tangs and large wrasses. Then of course there's the clownfish and other fellows that stay around the rockwork.

Im getting a 240g long and I was wondering the same thing. I currently have a shark egg that will hatch in a month or 2 that will go in it, and a whole bunch of tangs. Im also putting my Picasso trigger. Don't know what else though lol

Do yellow tang school together, or would they go their own ways?

Well, I know on the reef they do together, but not sure if they do in the aquarium.

They are very cool fish, but I would probably want to go with some more peaceful fish. Very nice fish though! Would be great in an aggressive tank!
