    Great lists all,
    It's amazing to see the variety of choices and preferences on fish lists, one thing that strikes my attention (and it could just be a coincidence) is the reduced number of tangs in today's stocking compared to few years back...
    Let's see some more lists and pictures.

    I’ve got a standard 150 gal. It’s been set up for almost 1-1/2 years, but I have gone very slowly stocking it, both with fish and corals.

    1 Sailfin Tang (Veliferum)
    1 Hippo Tang
    1 Kole’s Yellow Eye Tang
    1 Flame Angel
    1 Flame Hawkfish
    1 Royal Gramma
    1 Lawnmower Blennie
    1 Sixline Wrasse
    1 Ocellaris Clownfish - hosts in toadstool leather coral
    2 Bangaii Cardinalfish
    4 Green Chromis

    I plan on adding at least a couple watchman gobies to keep sand stirred up.
    Other than that, I’m pretty happy with my stocking level, and all are enjoyable to watch with their own character.

    Cycling a 32 & planning to slowly add:

    2 clowns (for my daughters)

    Starry blenny (fun to watch)

    Yellow watchman & tiger pistol shrimp (would prefer a jaw fish but don’t want to increase sandbed to 6”)

    Long nose hawkfish (entertaining fish with a different shape & cool pattern)

    Pair of Snowflake Clowns - I like the traditional clown look with a twist of designer
    3 Marica Anthis - Wanted some Anthias and my lfs had some of these so I figured id give them a try. Truly awesome fish.
    Sixline Wrasse - They are useful and very pretty. Wish they stayed as nice as this one has been for the last couple of years
    Kole Tang - Best clean up crew member you can get for a BB tank. Eats detritus and craps it out as a fine mist that gets carried off to the skimmer.
    Scopas Tang - Poor man's tang. Pretty IMO
    Yellow Tail Damsel - That blue though. They get a bad rap IMO.
    Blue Jaw Trigger - Just got it yesterday. Hoping it makes it through the hiding phase.

    100 gallon

    2 Ocellaris clowns
    1 green mandarin
    1 red firefish
    1 purple firefish
    1 tomini tang
    1 yellow tang
    1 flame angel

    Added in that order. The clowns, firefish and tangs all went in as pairs. Trying to acheive a somewhat peaceful bunch after having a semi-aggresive FOWLR for several years. Had one maroon clown that killed any and all new additions. Didnt want to end up in that situation again. Eventually would like to have a blotchy anthias to top it off but cant quite commit to spending that kind of dough on something that could easily die.
