    Maybe a trio of lyre tail anthias, can’t go wrong with a borbonius anthias, and since it’s your money I’m spending throw in a pair of Sakura Anthias.

    You had masked swallow tails in your old tank right? Any thought on doing them again. They are gorgeous fish.

    Yes it has, I’m still dry at the moment. Too many house projects, I did at least get my pellet stove upstairs on a WiFi thermostat! some day....but not right now.

    With a tank that big I'd skip the lyertails and go with several bimacs. I'm a wrasse head so I'd vote yes for many of them. :) I've always liked bellus angles. Genicanthus semifasciatus males are awesome also if you can get one to keep its male coloration. I had a trio and the male sadly switched back to the female coloration.

    I personally would go with a nice school of lyretail or any anthius for that matter (Sorry Mike). The schooling personalities they carry and their stunning color is something that really gets the tank active and colorful.

    No. That is my frag tank.

    QT will be two, 75 gallon tanks.

    Awesome man. Are you planning on plumbing the frag tank into the main system or keeping it separate? Any decisions on equipment such as return pump, calcium reactor or dosing pumps?

    No calcium reactor for me Kev, was never a fan. It will be 2 part dosing as it was. Same return pump the hammerhead gold. For now frag tank will be connected. I might setup a SPS QT in the long run.
