    So far I was thinking of:

    2 Clown Fish (Not sure which type, any suggestions welcome)
    1 Blue Hippo Tang
    School of Fish xD (I would like to try to get a group of unique looking fish)
    1 large display fish (a suggestion for this would also be great)

    I'd go for true Percs for the clowns, can't beat them in my opinion. Having said that i've got a pair of black Ocellaris lol! You have quite a few choices for the schooling fish. Damsels, Chromis, maybe try a school of Firefish, Bangaii Cardinals moght work aswell. The large display fish could be one of the bigger Angels, a trigger (Picasso maybe, agressive fish though), or you could try a Volitans Lionfish, gorgeous fish in my opinion, but will eat anything that fits in it's mouth lol.

    Great suggestions. I adore black Ocellaris! Could I have a regular ocellaris and a black/white one together? I think the contrast in colors would be pretty cool.

    Firefish can school? I have always liked those. How many can I fit in my tank to school together?

    A pretty Angel sounds nice also. Although I heard a lot arn't reef safe. Any suggestions on a nice large Angel fish that won't harm my corals?

    I think it depends on the fish because I have a picasso trigger in my tank and it is not what I would call a reef simply because I don't have alot of corals yet but he doesn't bother the corals,snails.crabs,or sea stars I have.
    I have a pair of baby maroon and gold clowns.They have always been my favorite in clowns.Although the black clowns are soooo pretty too.Wish I could have both in my tank.
    Display fish,,I reallt like the tangs.Especially the sailfin.Or even a foxface.

    If I had a 125g and was thinking along those lines I'd tweak it towards:

    2 Tomato Clowns (although you could do any I believe)
    1 Achilles Tang
    1 Scopas or Purple Tang
    5-6 Anthias, probaby Bartlett's or Lyretails (only one male of any)

    I would do a school of blue chromis OR a school of anthias.

    pinktail triggers are Suppost to be reef safe.

    as far as clowns try something cool like naked clowns or picassos, davinnci's or blacks.

    you could do a display angel (have to monitor w/ coral though)either a midnight angel or leemonpeel bi-colors are also pretty nice. Let us know what you decide.

    go ahead and add the pintail triger,true clowns tend to not be on other fish menue,lion fish is also a great suggestion if you have a reef,yellow tang would be more of a native fish for your selections of tank inhabitants.
