Blue hyppo tang, 4". Have it for 4 month.



Sailfin tang, 4". Have it for only 3 days.

I've had my yellow for two years also---has always been 3.5 inches, never grown. Is that unusual. My blue and sailfin are gowning all the time.

If they hang out with the dwarf angels more often may be we can get the X-breed. Wouldn't that be nice and we can add a lot more into our little tank.

Hey kar93,

There is also a True Percula Clown, and a Yellow-Tail damsel in there too. As far as inverts go there is a peppermint shrimp, a cleaner shrimp, about 7 snails, nassarius and turbos. I have another yellow tail in the sump named Damsel Washington. He and the other one got tits one day and decided to try and mess up the PBT. Not having it. The PBT was $x+y+z and the damsels were $x/50, so I had to seperate them. The one in the sump is doing ok!

Thanks, dhesq.

There's been a few postings of "Powder Brown Tangs" which are actually "White cheek" or "White faced" tangs.

A. japonicus...not A. nigricans.
http://www.wetwebmedia.com/GoldRimSs.htm

I haven't seen anyone post a picture of this "little" guy! Naso vlamingi. I hope he grows up FAST! I call him "the fish that would be king..."


Did I already post my Achillies Tang?....oh well, here he is again. Sorry, he doesn't slow down much for photography....

Me Too, I thought with them being one of the smaller tangs loads of people would have them.

Question for all you Tang Experts.
I just purchased an Achilles. He will be going in a QT soon, all by himself.
Are they easy to teach to eat? How do you do it? I know other people have put them together with Tangs that eat already...
