I think a full grown dussumieri tang is absolutely stunning and is the best looking tang out there.

I don't care how common they are..the graphic colors of the powder blue are my favorite.

Edit: Silly me, forgetting the gratuitous pic

This Sohal is in a 10 ft. long 560 gallon aquarium. It definitely uses every inch of space in the tank.

I had to vote for the Blue (hippo) tang. It's one of the fishes that got me into SW (the other was the Ocellaris). Too bad I prefer nano's.
