thanks, just one more pair of clowns, two scooter blennies, six line wrasse, blue tang, and vlamingi tang. achilles tang if i can find one. corals, whatever i already have in my 65g and mini nems. no sharks for me. maybe scribbled rabbitfish. pretty much all i PLAN on stocking. the rest of livestock is from impulse buys. :P

 

oh yeah... lots and lots of clams :D

well, my 72" fixture not coming until june/july, sorry if i already said that. i am using 48" from LFS for time being. light is good. like how it does dimmer effect for sunrise sunset. and it is a powerful light, with major penetration. i would recommend, because the lights make colors POP.

Wow I imagine stocking a tank that big with corals would be hard because you probably need extra large colonies of everything
