I shall double post my own thread.

Kinda nervous about the move. Shouldn’t be, this LFS has been doing stuff like this for 30 years. And the owner knew immediately what a beast my oceanic is so he’s having 4 people coming on the job. Should be fine.

in other news, can’t believe it’s finally happening. One step closer

Will do my friend! I think it’ll go well. Got a lot of rearranging and cleaning up to do both at my old place and the new house. We still haven’t completely moved in so there are a ton of boxes and stuff to break down and move from where my tank will be. I’ll get it done.

Man. Just looked at the first page of my build. Boy was I optimistic. Oh well. I’m getting there. And I’m now, in retrospect, glad it’s taken me so long.

I’ve made good friends in here and have several people who I would consider “‘mentors” which every newbie should have.

heck, somehow this has been informative to other hobbyists just getting in. If nothing else I’m glad for that

So... I believe I have my tentative fish stock list for my 120;

my one spot fox
My pair of osc clowns
An aiptasia eating filefish
Blue throat trigger
A pair of Bengai cardinals or maybe a trio of Bartlett’s anthias (leaning towards cardinals)
Midas blenny
Black capped basslet
Eventually a mandarin or dragonette
One or two of the small cryptic gobies.
either a scopas or tomini tang

What do the more experienced reefers who give my build the time of day think?

I think you can add more fish to it!

My vote is the Cardinals for sure. They are the next fish addition (I'm pretty sure) for mine. Going to get a captive bred pair online.

I'm selling my 55g planted (hopefully tomorrow) so that will be $120 burning a hole in my pocket so we will see what the lfs has in stock..

I’m trying to be conservative lol. At least until my system is established.

if I didn’t try to do so.... not sure how to make blue planet scenes in a 4x2x2 glass box lol
