Hey reefing community,
I am currently setting up a 120 gallon reef tank. This will be my third reef tank and will be an upgrade. I started with a bio cube then moved to a 55 gallon and now 120g. Currently it is in the cycling stage and I am taking it slow so enjoy the start of this journey.

The mix of rock makes it look very ... abstract XD looks great, love the scape itself though! Whats your livestock plan for this baby?
Haha thanks, I used rocks I had laying around and bought new base rocks. Hopefully one day it will all be covered is coraline. I'm thinking a clownfish pair and I like tangs so maybe a couple tangs. I am def open to suggestions/recommendations.

My suggestion:
- pair of clowns.
- You can probably keep a few tangs, I would recommend tomini or kole, but i think in a tank that size you can have yellow and/or blue tangs.
- I really coral beauty angels
- Anthias are cool fish too, you can keep a small school of those.
- Lots of cool wrasses.

Anyone else know anytihng? I only have a 20g (which im upgrading to a 65g) so I dont know too many larger fish XD

Thanks! I'll look into those. Similar situation my previous tanks were small so I just had a pair of clown fishes and a goby.

I like the red lined wrasse or pink streaked wrasse if you are looking for smarter wrasses. You should also check out the swissguard basselet. I am new to the reefing community and I only have a 30 gallon so those might be horrible suggestions they were just fish I thought were cool. I am getting the pink streaked wrasse though.
