Is this tank large enough for this stocking list?

120 gallon long. 60" x 18" x 24" with a 30 gallon sump

2 false percs
1 banggai cardinal
2 green chromes
1 yellow watchman
1 regal tang
1 yellow tang

The only possible additions would be one more chromes and 2 more cardinals.

Thanks for the input.

Yeah. That tank size looks fine. Are one of those dimensions an inch bigger? My calculations is putting that tank at 112 gallons...

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

No problems at all. A word of warning, however. The Regal (aka Clown) Tang, Acanthurus lineatus, is a very very aggressive species and is quite difficult to keep. They almost always have internal parasite problems when purchased and a LONG quarantine period is required. I had mine in Q for over 6 weeks.

Be very patient in looking for a good fish and add it as the last fish to the tank. Even then, you should have a back up plan down the road in case it becomes to belligerent. Aggression increases tremendously with age.

By the way, my Clown Tang is my favorite fish by far.
