Hi all, have kept cichlids on and off for may years with work forcing me do give up and re home my setups. have kept both Central American and Tangs.
I have just ordered a 157g (Us) and will run a weir and sump setup to allow for future expansion.

I intend to set this up as a Tang Tank.

I am leaning towards Fronts but could really do with some advice on stocking with these in mind.

If you have time I would also like to hear your thoughts on what you would stock in a tank of this size with or without fonts and why.

IF it is of any benefit I would be happy to share my tank build/setup as it happens for newbies.

thanks for reading

What are the dimensions of the tank? Frontosa are ideal in a species tank.

Hi DjRansome,

Tank is 72" x 24" x 24" could go deeper upto 30" but max out on length and width

Length is most important...personally would not go to 30". Will let the frontosa keepers chime in on how many.
