Ok. Here are a couple pics of my two tangs. The tank is a 125, I have a yellow tang about a year old and about 4" long and a juvenile atlantic blue that is about 2" long and maybe 3 months old.

Group shot



BTW, Great tangs everybody!

oldschooldino - I like the looks of Atlantic Blue Tang. I never see them in the LFS or I might have one.

How is it behaving so far?

Just got my Christmas present. A macro lens for my Rebel XTI.
One of my first shots. Not the best for sure but not to bad for a beginner either I guess?

The coolest thing about this tang was that he would get so angry every time I put my black pro scraper in the tank which had a yellow guard that held the blade... The tang would get jet black and his yellow would start to glow.. It was almost like he was imitating the scaper and showing his dominance.. Very cool stuff

kar93 - Well, I can't take credit for the pictures. My good friend Brian took those shots, along with a bunch more. I'll be sure to let him know about your compliments, though.

kilmca - The atlantic blue is an incredibly well-behaved fish. Eats well, doesn't bother other fish or corals, and is really cool to look at on top of it all. The yellow tang did give him trouble when first introduced, chasing, fin-flaring. Working out the pecking order. The yellow is king of the tank, and he likes to show everyone now and again, but he has settled down alot. All in all, I couldn't be happier. PremiumAquatics had two altantic blues (LFS for me ) one time, and I came home with one. If I had the room, I would've gotten both! Haven't seen any more anywhere lately. Funny thing is, at LFS he was pale blue. Got him home and he turned this color:




About a week later, he turned yellow. Must've been stress. IDK.

Thats interesting. I did not know they morphed like that in reverse. Mine came in large already so i missed out on the yellow to blue stage. Next time i will be sure to get a young ling. Great pictures!
