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...

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.

By Regal Tang I meant the blue tang. :) I love the Clown Tang though and now I am thinking about that instead. ;)
