    Looks great. I'm curious about the multiple yellow tangs. Why did you put in so many?

    I wanted a school of them and the tank can support it they have been in there for 3 months with no isues or aggression . This tank will have a lot of you saying why. I'm going outside the box it will have a marbled white bamboo shark in it also.

    Very cool. Looking forward to seeing what all you end up with. Having people ask why is good, in my opinion.

    I'm planning out what to put into my 350 tank with a 150 sump for around 400 gallons of total water. I've been comparing all of the inch per gallon threads I can find. A lot of the fish I'm planning are fairly slender, so I think I'll end up pushing close to 1 inch per 2 gallons if I eventually get everything I want in there.

    Have you done any calculation of planned fish per gallon?

    I'm curious too. Why can't you? Because it would knock stuff off or over?

    Honestly this tank will not have a ton of fish I plan on doing high end mixed reef. I never have done calculations
