pacific blue tang

  1. Reef Fish
    I have a pacific blue tang that seems to have lost his color. His bottom half is more dark than blue. He is quite old I think. I have had him for at least 5 years and bought him used to begin with. Do they get darker with age? He has been this way for at least 4 months. tks

    I've come to the conclusion that I'm just too busy recently to do a coherent job on 4 tanks. I have enough time and energy for 1-2 and as a result, all 4 are in various states of neglect. I have a 75 gallon RR complete system that I am considering getting rid of, with about 40-60 lbs of rock...

    Sadly, I'm done with this hobby for a while. Just lost interest and want to get this all gone as quick as possible. Buyer pays shipping via USPS or UPS Ground. Prefer local pickup for all livestock, tank, stand and sump as they are large and I don't want to mess with any of that stuff. FYI, in...

    Well first off I'll tell about my system and the madness behind it... Initially it was setup last September and was BB. Everything was great with it until I really started slacking over this last spring and summer. I didn't really do anything to it for quite sometime and it was just in sad...

    So, I've got a couple of false percs and so far they want nothing to do with the bubble tip anenome. I've heard that if they are tank raised they may not have learned that habit. Do I have any better chance with true percs to get them to host the anenome? Anyone have any success with tank...
