    As part of my big tank makeover, I am reconsidering a few fish.
    As some big carnivores grow, they are starting to overwhelm the tank.
    No fights or anything, but an issue with feeding, water quality, and aesthetics.

    In particular, I may be selling my Yellow Tang, Cuban Hogfish, and Harlequin Tuskfish.

    I really have TOO MANY ideas, so I thought I would throw it out there and
    see if anyone had some fun thoughts.

    Maybe a school/shoal of something other than the usual Anthias?

    Some fun relatively reef safe angels?

    See attached file for current fish. (240G, 8' long tank).

    Keep the fish!!
    Those fish are awesome. And old fish are even cooler
    Go softies and keep the fish
    Just my 2 cents
    But it's your tank...

    Can you donate fish to the steinhart? Or maybe a LFS

    It's your tank hard to tell what you want.

    I think a shoal of anthias would be really cool. A male and a harem.

    Yeah, good advice.
    I keep getting the SPS-itch, but I do really like all the fish.

    That would look really nice.
    I worry about feeding them. But hey - an improved auto-feeder could be the next challenge.

    Latest thought:

    I may put the two big carnivores in the fuge. It is a 100G fuge after all...
    Then I can add back some cleaner shrimp and smaller fish in the main tank.
    Shoal of Anthias is really tempting.

    With all those fish, I may have to keep my algae scrubber after all....

    It is funny, but my kid suggested something like that.
    The stand below my main tank is empty. Sump is in garage.
    So he suggested putting a second tank down there.... double decker tank.
    Way too hard to access though.

    I could put it here, where I was going to put the QT tanK:

    But NO, the last thing I need is yet more tanks.
