I’m getting a 180 (72 by 24 by 24) around Christmas, and I’ve come up with the stocking that I want for it.

I’m getting a sump around 50-60 gallons, and I already got a large aquamaxx skimmer

I already have a few tanks, and plan to add most of the fish I have to it

Fish that must go in
Threadfin snapper 8”
Zebra eel 30”
Foxface 5”
Blue throat trigger 5”
Polleni grouper 3”
Purple tang 3”

Fish I want to add
Achilles tang
Regal angel
Harlequin tusk
Coral cat shark
Broom tail wrasse
Ribbon eel or golden spotted snake eel

I also have a 4” emperor angel, that I’d like to add, but I understand that they often are a problem with sharks

Which ones wouldn’t work, and why?
Thanks

A 180 is a good sized tank, but you've got some big and active fishes there.

The first one I wouldn't do is the shark. I don't think a 180 is big enough for a catshark.

Achilles are too big and active, based on the ones I've seen in public aquariums. I haven't kept one. Powder brown might be a good substitute.

Ribbon eels are a nightmare to feed.

Edit: grammar
