Most of the supplies are still on order, but here is what I want the stand to look like when finished:

Sure.

For filtration I'll be using a 55gallon custom sump and a Reef Octopus DNW-300 Recirculating Skimmer and at least 150lbs of Live Rock
The lighting will be a 72" MH/PC/Moonlight fixture
As for the stocking list, I know there are a few fish I would like (Hippo Tang, Clownfish (Probably Percula), the rest I haven't decided quite yet :)

sounds like its going to be a pretty sweet tanks. i suggest planning more on the stocking prior to adding any fish so you can decide a good order in which to do so.
have you looked in your area for a local reef club?

Ok, I did a bit of work on the stocking list, here it is:

1. 2 Regal Yellowbelly Tangs
2. 1 Powder Brown Tang
3. 1 Clown Gobie
4. 1 Shrimp Gobie
5. 4 Firefish
6. 2 Ocellaris Clownfish
7. 3 Green Chromis
8. 1 Bar Gobie
9. 5 Neon Gobies
10. 1 Percula Clownfish
11. 1 Cleaner Wrasse

Is that going to be ok for a 125 gallon tank? (I am still working on a Invert and Coral list)

im iffy about the 3 tangs and the 2 different species of clowns. your also better off IMO to up the number of chromis and lower the number of neon gobies. i have heard that the chromis will kill off the weakest one, one by one until your left with one. im not sure how true this is, as i have no personal experience with them, just something to consider.

Ok, So I'll take off the Ocellaris Clownfish. Can I get away with more than one tang or do I just need to stick with one?

you can do more then one tang but different shapes/colors/species and its best to add them at the same time.

So would one Blue Tang and one Powder Brown be ok or would I be better off with a Blue tang and a Yellow tang or something like that?
