    So I've got a wild caught pair of Maroon Clownfish in day 10 of TTM and they will be going into my 37G QT in a couple of days. I want to start TTM on a Kole tang this week after the clowns are done and will add it to the QT after TTM. I've read some people having success with these two fish...

    So I've had my Kole Tang for three weeks now and he seems to be doing great. Won't eat sheets of algae on a clip or rubber banded to a rock. He does however love his New Era Marine Grazers and has finally learned turkey Baster means brine and mysis shrimp time. He eats little from the basted but...

    So I've had this Kole Tang 8 days. Water is good tank is 9 weeks old. Other stock is two ocellaris clowns and a royal gramma. I think he's getting more pale each day and the wife says he looks the same. He's eating the algae discs and has cleaned all my algae in the tank. He ate some mysis and...

    So I picked up a 3" Kole Tang on Thursday. The food he was eating is a round pellet that can be put on a suction cup and attached to the glass. I've done two feedings with the other fish with brine mysis and nls and he is still hiding when I'm in the tank. Yesterday I put a pellet on the suction...

    So I was going to pick up a 3" Kole Tang in the morning but is my tank too young? 8 weeks to the day. Current stock is a royal gramma, two ocellaris clowns, one hermit crab, one cleaner shrimp and one sexy shrimp. I have green and coralline algae in my tank. Should I wait? I've waited at least...

    So my new Kole Tang came down with Ich after having him for 3 days. Anyhow today he started swimming up and getting in the middle of the chromis school and stretching out his fins for the Chromis to pic at his scales. Anyone ever heard or seen this?

    Hey I have a 55 gallon tank with plenty of live rock, sand as substrate anf 3 power heads in my fish tank. Well I just picked up a Kole Tang that spent a week in QT at the LFS before I picked him up. He joined my Flame Angel fish and picked on her a bit but not excessively. I put him in my tank...

    I know there is probably a thread out there about this, or similar, but I can't seem to find one, so here goes. Basically self explanatory, will a Yellow Eye Kole Tang and a Flame Angelfish get along in a 75 gallon tank?

    Ok, so I have a kole tang and he has quickly become one of my favorite fish. Yesterday I noticed that he has little white spots all over him. He seem to get these white spots every know and then. They are there and then they are not there. That seems to be one symptom of ich. The odd thing...

    I have a blue eyed kole tang who has been living in my 90 gal for about 2 months now. Today I introduced a female green mandarin to my tank. The kole tang is bullying the crud out of her. Very odd behavior, the kole has not been mean to any other new fish that have been introduced. I have done...

    I have a small (~3") Kole Tang in my 55 gallon tank. The guys at the LFS talked me into buying it. I love the fish, but it'll get too big for my tank too fast. So I'd like to get rid of it ASAP. Only asking $40. Must go to a well established 75+ gallon tank. I'm located in a Northshore suburb...

    I want to encourage the growth of Hair Algae and Macro Algae in my tank. We love our Surgeonfish and would like to offer them natural ways to get a yumy treat. I know about compact fluorescent lighting, and plan on getting that right away. What other tips can you give? Thank you!

    I have a FOWLR tank, 125gal. I have 2 ocellaris clowns, a pajama cardinal, 2 cleaner shrimp, and a handful of hermit crabs and snails. About 100 lbs of Live Rock. I added a Kole Tang a few days ago- he's still skittish, not been aggressive or picked on. I noticed today that one of my shrimp is...

    Hey all, I have a 150 gallon reef, water parameters are perfect. Mixed variety of SPS, LPS and only a few fish. Current fish are a six line wrasse, tomini tang, royal gramma, and three clownfish. I was curious if putting a yellow eye kole tang in with the tomini would be an issue? Also...

    2 weeks ago I added a 3" Kole Tang to my 90 Gallon FOWLR. He is eating well and appears healthy. The problem is that he seems to have noticed his reflection in the glass at the back of my tank and has become very agitated. To the point that I now can see the barbs near his tail extending from...

    I've had a yellow eye kole tang in my 90g for about 2 1/2 weeks and he wouldn't eat anything at all. But, today I kinda crouched on the side of the tank (cuz he hides everytime he sees me) so I waited for him to come back out and graze, I tossed some spectrum pellets over the side and he went...

    I am considering adding my last fish which I want to be a tang. Currently I have a orchid dottyback (very calm not aggressive), two tank raised percula clowns, two pajama's and one neon gobby (cleaner) and two cleaner Skunk Shrimp... I just want to make sure I get a fish that is not going to be...

    Well, Ive had both in the tank together with the other fish for over a month, and over the last 2 days the Kole Tang has been chasing and tormenting my Starry Blenny. They have ample food in the tank and no one is going hungry (maybe need to see about fishie weight watchers). Lately I have...
