    Stocking List for Reef 125 Gallons

    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)

    *35G SW FOWLR: 2x Cardinal, Bicolor Blenny, Mean Clownfish
    *24G SW Reef Aquapod: 2x Black & White Clownfish (named Garfield and Odie), Goby , Pistol Shrimp, Sixline

    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.
    Learning from your own mistakes is good. Learning from other peoples mistakes is even better!!

    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.
    135 gallon SW/ 30 gallon sump, 140 pounds of rock
    Fish: Salifin Tang,Yellow Tang,Hippo Tang,Porcupine Puffer,Maroon & Gold Clown,Green Spotted Mandrin,Blue velvet damsel,Dragon goby
    Inverts:Chocolate Chip Star,Green Brittle Star,2 horse shoe crabs , sand flounder
    Corals:Hairy mushrooms,Colt coral,zoos, button polps,pulsing xenia

    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.
