    Hey everyone wanted to get an interactive fish stocking list for the 180 that is currently cycling. Here are a few of the criteria I am looking for: SPS dominate reef tank with a bare bottom, 1 angel of some sort...Bandit anglefish?...<---Dreams, lots of tangs " Already have a sailfin and a purple tang...I will be looking into getting 1-2 captive bred"100% aquacultured" yellow tangs. Other than that I want to see what some of you would put in the tank. Again its a 180 thats 72x24x25 I'll come up with a list to post later tonight possibly.

    I saw a nice koi tang on fb earlier that would go great in that tank. Lol

    I wish they are beautiful but have a beautiful price tag.

    Is it going to be SPS only or mainly SPS? If SPS only I would have a bicolor angel. Always wanted one but I have too many zoas and LPS to get away with one at least for now. Potter's angels are also cool.

    Achilles or Gold Rim tang

    Gotta have some wrasses! Flame, Lineatus, Labout's, Exquisite, Ear Muff, Yellow wrasse, Vrolik's?

    You got me there doc it will be MAINLY SPS I will have zoas and other LPS but they will be a dime a dozen compared to SPS.

    Man, that's a lot of tangs! You also have the most aggressive ones already in the tank. Maybe the numbers will help and the aggression will be spread out. My purple would not allow another tang in but every one is an individual.

    I'm looking for a radiant wrasse, they are unique an really pretty.

    I won't have to many tangs.....don't call you know who.....but yes the number wont allow territories most likely. Most of the time live aquarian has radiants. But I also havent shopped for fish in a year or so and noticed my flame wrasse went from 250 to 550 so I am going with a radiant or a pair of them. I just will have to hide a small thing of sand

    Just get one. Then you have room for a different wrasse! :D Wrasses don't pair like other fish do. They also almost always turn to male in captivity...and that often doesn't end well for one of two males.

    If you can find a female Flame wrasse they are much cheaper. I bought one for about $100 about 9 months ago. It took about 6 months for the tiny 2" female to transition to a 3.5" male. PIA has females some times.

    I need to get a femals flame then although my Male was mean to just about everyone hopefully the next wont be as vicious.

    Neither of the flames I've had were aggressive. In fact the current one is getting pushed around by a little Exquisite that's about half his size. I bet all those tangs would keep any wrasse short of a Thallasoma from being to much of a punk.

    I’d ask josh from tlreef! I’ve gotten a few nice fish from him. He always gets them eating and it’s only $15 shipping. Might have to wait till he gets an order in though.

    We should just go up as a group like in the CARPOOL post. I would be more than happy to go as a group and spend my grocery money for the month. Lucky me I got some meat in the freezer!
