Pasfur's 180 FOWLR build

This is a discussion on Pasfur's 180 FOWLR build within the Saltwater Journals forums, part of the Aquarium Photography category; --> I will work on a video feed after the tank is full. I've never used video online before, so it will be a challenge. ...

I purchased a Sailfin Tang today, Zebrasoma veliferum, and added it to my 38 quarantine. This has always been one of my favorite marine fish. I know the desjardini is more popular, but I think the veliferum is a much more attractive fish. Here is a pic:

My Blue Girdled did not arrive at the LFS this week, so it will have to wait. I am starting to have second thoughts and may purchase an Emperor Angel instead.

I'm happy you'll eventually be working on a video feed, I think it'll be well worth your time for my viewing pleasure.
Are their different genus of the emperor? I've googled it and different images pop up. Do the juveniles look different than the adults?
PS. Your Zebrasoma veliferum is beautiful!

Pomacanthus imperator is the "Emperor" angel that I was referring to. This is exactly why I use scientific names.... you never know exactly what google is going to show you or what the LFS will sale to you!

Ah, I love sailfins.

Emperor Angels are gorgeous as well (not like I needed to tell you). A LFS here has a full grown one in a show tank (if you want to call it that saying it isn't a reef tank) and it gets my attention every time.

My Blue Girdled Angelfish arrived on Wednesday. It looks great and is eating very well. I put it on hold, planning to pick it up on Wednesday. I plan to move the Sailfin Tang into the 180 on Tuesday night. I am shortening the Q time to only 10 days to make this happen, but I feel comfortable given the overall health of this Sailfin. Plus, it was at the LFS for 2 weeks prior to my purchase, spot free the entire time.

I moved the Sailfin Tang to the 180 last night. Today I added a Majestic (Blue Girdled) Angelfish and a Scopas Tang to the Q tank.

I know what you're thinking.... a SCOPAS TANG!???? Who would ever buy a Scopas Tang? That is exactly what I thought until I found this particular fish. I am researching where this specimine was collected, because I've never seen one with such a deep yellow chocolate color. My wife said it is the most beautiful marine fish she has ever seen.

Its funny, I've heard this said many times, but i've never had these guys to multiply to any rapid degree. I don't see the fish eating at them, but perhaps the fish are eating the very small ones and only the adults survive.

I also have a number of these in my 54 reef, but they don't seem to bother the corals, despite the fact that most research i've done says they will feed on leathers.

Thoughts?

i only have a very few as im pretty sure my christmas wrasse eats them but i would eventually like to get rid of him in hopes of getting something else ( suprise suprise) but thats down the road.
harlequin shrimp will also eat them, but then need other starfish for their diet when the supply runs out.

ive heard people claim they eat coral and kill coral but i think thats more like the coral died and they are just eating the dead/dying coral flesh. i personally havnt had issues with them. i do believe there are more then one kind of these stars though and some being more prolific then others.

After slightly over 6 weeks in the Q tank, I added the Majestic Angel and Scopas Tang to my 180 today. The Majestic went basically unnoticed, but the Scopas had a bit of a scuffle with the existing Zebrasoma Tang species, especially the Salfin. Fortunately the Scopas was the largest Zebrasoma and was well conditioned in quarantine. Things seem to have settled down now and I don't anticipate any lasting issues.

I will post pictures this week sometime. My current stocking list:
Clarki Clown, Red Squirrelfish, Cuban Hogfish, 2 Yellowtail Damsels, Majestic Angel, Foxface, Blonde Naso Tang, Clown Tang, Tomini Tang, Yellow Tang, Sailfin Tang, Scopas Tang.

I feel like i'm forgetting a fish. I guess thats what happens when you stock a 180.

Glad it went well. Looking forward to seeing the new pics. Were these the last additions or will there be more?

Oh, I just saw on another thread you decided on a Flame Angel...
