    I have seen Niger Triggers be complete pains. One of the LFS has one in its own tank because it destroys everything. I have also heard that 6-lines can be mean. What order do you intend on adding them?

    Niger trigger last is a good call, but tangs 1st could be problematic based on the research I have done.

    Though peaceful towards most tankmates, the Pacific Blue will become aggressive towards other fish of its own species.

    I would do the yellow tang first, the blue tang last and the 6 line should also be bottom of the list, too.

    I wouldn't worry bout the six line, there little bitches but nothing really goes down with them. I know we talk about bioload, I agree with it but with all the tangs, I would add them together. My yellow tang is an ass to everything and he was added last. I wouldn't dare add another fish him in the tank. I honestly don't think it will matter with that behemoth of a tank

    Mario is right. Add all the tangs together. Niger Triggers can easily be kept in check by additional feedings. A great way to reduce aggression is to over feed a little bit. Fat fish are happy fish lol. Other then that, bad ass on the upgrade dude :)! Your stocking list is perfectly fine. But yeah, all the tangs at once to help them not rip each other apart lol

    the reason im thinking of taking the niger trigger off the list is i read they like to rearrange the tank not sure i want to wake up one morning and find a rock has gone thru the tank. as far as the tangs im fine with adding them together. and i couldnt pass the tank up 450 bux for the tank, stand, 2 metal halide ballasts (each one runs 2 lights, one is 2x175 and the other is 2x250 , 4 metal halide lights, a sump that im not using.
