Hmm,,well the blue/regal can get huge ,,one of the biggest next to the naso's and they tend to grow fast..I never owned one but have seen a buddies grow almost overnight ...I wouldn't go under 180 gallons simply because of the width ..a 125 is 6 feet long but only 18 inches wide ..a 180 gives you a 6 x 2 footprint..doesn't seem like much but once its filled with rock its a big difference ...I bet you'll be able to find something even bigger, 250 + would be my starting point ,especially if you want a puffer too.. Are you near any bigger cities ..i see your in Florida,,i lived in Jacksonville for a few years ,,nice place
I'm in west palm so I'm further south but Miami isint to far from me and Orlando is only about 2 hours. Jacksonville is 4. I've been searching Craigslist for about a month but I only really found one thing that I kick myself for not buying. I found a 300 gallon that was in a restaurant that they stopped using for 500 I think. I waited to long to make up my mind! Darn it!! Ok! I'll definitely look into getting a bigger tank then! I really love the look of saltwater and even though I'm still cycling my 20tall freshwater I've already got my eyes set on a big saltwater tank lol. Problem is down here everyone's selling the whole thing! Tank with Rick and fish and all parts! And right now I don't have the room to keep it running. I'd have negotiate with my roommate to clear our half their stuff just for my fish tank. Lol. It's a 2 bedroom apartment but were on the first floor so no weight issues! Just space lol.
