my tank will be (am currently planning it) a 6 foot 125g mixed reef. Here is my stocking list plan:

2 snowflake eels
1 volitan lionfish
1 blue tang
1 convict tang
1 mimic lemon peel tang
1 one spot foxface rabbitfish
2 leaf fish or 1 orangebanded stingfish


Also i am concerned that once the lionfish and other fish grow large that when i add a new fish and it is small that it will be eaten. How do you solve that?

Another future tank is where new small fish will go so not eaten. When planning predator tank, plan to lose some to others... Nature & Darwin at work... <wink>
