    120 gallon sounds real nice :mrgreen: I would have gone a little deeper on the sand bed,for the biological aspect.I like a deep sand bed though.If you put live sand in already you you mix some regular sand with it.I think you could add the percs,gobies and some inverts after 2 to 3 mounths.the other can be added little by little as you bio permits.If you have plans to keep coral all angels are known to nip at them.manderines are very picky eaters,but if you tank is very mature and have alot of copepods for them to much all is fine. Just my 2 cents
