I will be upgrading shortly from a 75 to a 150. Right now the 75 has three fish in it. I have a juvenile koran, a huma and a yellow tang. All three are about three inches long. When I move them to the 150 I want to add a pair of clowns and a coral beauty. Should I put the new fish in the 150 and add the old ones later or should I put them in together?

I'd add the new fish to the new tank first and then the others later. Your Koran and Humu can get aggressive more than the other fish. So in this respect it's best to add the new ones first so they are the dominant fish in that tank. Less chance for trouble. You always want to add least aggressive to most aggressive.

Thats what I was thinking, thanks.

Yup, what dave said. Think of the 75 as your QT....

Also, a huma may get a little out of control with a heavy stocklist so I'd stock light..

I agree, also 150 is still too small for a Koran which can become very aggressive with no room and a crowded tank.
