He is about 5 inches and the only thing he does to the corals that i can tell is eat red bugs of them.

Hey Reeftank,
I have had him now for only 2 weeks, so far so good with him. Right now his tank mates are 1 false perc, 1 line-spotted flasher wrasse, 1 female carpenter flasher wrasse, 1 solarensis wrasse and a black sail fin blenny. All of which are house in a 92 corner. His upfront swimming space is about 4 foot, also he knows his way behind the rocks, it takes him about 1 side of the tank to the other, using the back. No problems with his aggression, but he is still a little human skiddish, not too bad but when I go to feed his instinct is to go hide, he then realizes food is on the way so he comes out. His eating is really good, he eats anything put in the tank like cyclopeeze, spectra pellets, mysis, prime reef, and of course seaweed, he will eat the green but much prefers the red. BTW, I really do not intend on adding any other tangs, so I hope he remains good.

Here are my four tangs. Atlantic Blue, yellow, Tomini and sail fin. There all in my 120. The Atlantic is about 5 1/2" and the rest get smaller from there. I am currently researching a 300 that will be getting built in a few weeks. They are all out growing the 120 along with my Gigas.

There you go Fade.
Sorry for the small picture. I am not use to this web site and i need to figure out the way it works still. The one i am on most times is a little less complicated.

Hello,

this is my Zebrasoma veliferum
its the only tang in a 253g tank
fish is 7-8 inches
bought him (rather small) in 2002



I take care of another 660g tank in a hotel.
there are the following tangs in it (beside some other fish):
1 Zebrasoma xanthurum
2 Naso vlamingii
9 Zebrasoma flavescens
1 Acanthurus leucosternon
1 Paracanthurus hepatus
1 Zebrasoma desjardinii

all fish are in perfect shape

the Acanthurus l. is about 6 inches long


and one of the two nasos - they are allready more than 12 inches long...


I would never have put some of the fish in the tank which are in there and especially the two nasos (they will need a much larger tank in the end) but they where allready there when I took over.

regards

Markus
