Hey guys!

We've almost wrapped up this BRS/WWC series and soon it will be almost on auto pilot until it's filled with SPS sticks!

Today, we talk about fish choices and show off what we picked for the BRS/WWC 750XXL tank......One thing to note, almost all of them have some sort of purpose. ;)

Depends on your definition of ‘having a purpose’. I always keep a bristle tang and halichoeres wrasse in my reef tanks as, respectively, slime/film algae and pest controllers. Somewhat hit or miss, but other tangs as hair algae consumers. Maybe even an angel as aiptasia/majano control. Otherwise is purely aesthetics.

@randyBRS I just watched the video, useful info as always.

I have a couple of questions though:
a) Are these fish going to be in there long term even once they grow?
b) is that heavily stocked? Especially considering Ryan said more fish are going in.

I’m interested because I’m currently in the middle of my 4 month maturation phase of my RSRxxl750.

I believe we intend to keept them in there long term for the most part and yes, I would consider the pretty a well stocked tank. :)
