I was going to try and catch him when I got home tonight and put him in my hospital tank. When I came home he looked like the picture below. I fed him and he ate as well as grazing on...

    He's my pride and joy and a total beast. Have had him about 2 years now and he's grown about 3" since then. Right now he's about 7" to the end of streamers.

    Hey everyone! I recently bought an achilles tang (four days ago to be exact) and he's been doing fine for the past three. But, today it looks like he ran into something when the lights were out since his mouth was swollen and covered in white "scars." His health has been going down all day...

    Hey, I posted a question a couple of days ago about trying to get my Achilles Tang to eat NLS pellets. Right now I have TheraA formula, and he doesn't touch it. Anyone out there have success with NLS Finicky after NOT having success with the others? I'm wondering if it's worth trying out.

    Well since last post my Achilles Tang when he wasnt eating much at all, he has raised his eating level alot more than I was expecting so I think an extra feeding is going to be in order, but any suggestions how much more I should feed the tank without going into bad levels, he has devoured all...

    I've heard you can have 3 to 5 different tangs. (I have a 220 fowlr). I've heard you should add them all at once and then I've heard that's not good either. :idea:

    Alright, so I'm itching for one or two fish for my tank (150 gallon, click the signature link for details). I've got a pretty decent fish load right now, but I feel I've got room for a larger fish. All but 2 of my fish are under 2" right now, and they shouldnt get too much larger. Current...
