    Ok so I love tangs! My powder blue however is such a bully. Everyone gets along mostly. From time to time he lets everyone know he's the boss. However when I add a new fish he goes crazy and constantly picks at them for a couple days. Today I added a flame angel and the powder blue stayed true...

    I am so excited, I got four of these at the store today. They don't eat much, or swim much, but I think they are a perfect fit for my non-aggressive 55g tank.

I run a Turbo Twist UV Sterilizer and an Aqua Medic Turboflotor 1000 in sump skimmer. My lights are power...

    Hey Everybody - So I'm starting to more seriously research fish as I will begin adding fish towards the end of this month and early next month. I have a 125 that I'm starting to set up as a reef. So far I've got a cabbage soft coral, some zoanthids, a red mushroom, and a couple of very small...

    I purchased two tangs, a yellow and a powder blue tang 2 weeks ago. Iv'e noticed that the yellow tang harasses the PB quite often. The PB is getting ich i believe from the yellow tang being aggressive. I'm willing to remove the yellow tang or should I put the PB in the QT tank?

    I have a 135 gallon tank. Could I add a yellow tang and a powder blue tang to the tank at the same time without them fighting? Could I add any fish after these fish have been put into the tank?

    I have a 55 gal tank with a yellow and kole tang, coral beauty, fox face, royal gramma and a mandarin goby. This would be my last fish to add, which should I get and would they be ok in my tank?

    I have had a powder blue tang for a little over a month now. I wanted to add more color to my tank and another active fish. Apparently my powder blue was not big on the idea. I bag acclimated the yellow tang and the powder blue showed no interest in him. However, when I released him into the...

    What tank size would be sufficient for a powder blue tang, a purple tang, and a yellow tang, all full grown, all in the same tank? They all would be added at once, at the smallest possible size, as the last fish. Please understand, that I am not looking for the minimum tank to keep these species...

    In my 90g I have 1 Purple Tang (pretty big) and 2 clowns. I just added in a Powder Blue Tang last Tuesday. The Powder Blue was doing great and becoming more and more active around the tank. The Purple Tang chased him a little the first day but left him alone for the most part after a couple more...

    So live aquaria just put out their weekly specials and I was considering a powder blue tang... BUT, i realize they need a lot of space. My tanks a 90 gallon - probably too small, right? Its only 48 long and I think i've read here before they ought to have at least 6 feet of swimming space? What...
