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



Hopefully I'll get that done this weekend, more pics coming

care to share details about the setup? exactly what lights? filtration? so forth.. do you have a stocking list? what kind of corals?
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?

Pasfur gave me this link to help me choose tangs. Surgeonfish, Tangs, Unicornfish and Mooridsh Idols

Try not to mix if they are the same Genus: Acanthurus, Parancanthurus, Ctenochaetus, Naso or Zebrasoma. If you do mix Genus, add them at the same time and watch them carefully.

Pasfur gave me great advice when I asked about stocking my 150. Read this thread.
