    Hello TRT! I have a beautiful powder brown tang and it swims very wildly when lights go off for the evening. During the day it is a graceful swimmer, lol. Just wondering if this is normal night time behavior? Has anyone seen or have experience with this? :help1:

    My tank is a tall 110G (48" X 30" X 18"). It's currently Fish Only running for almost a year, but I plan on starting to add soft corals again in a few months. My first coral attempt failed when my MH ballast went out and I was out of town and I couldn't recover the 3 pieces when I returned...

    Hey guys just got a 2.5" Blue Tang and a 3" Powder Brown for my 150 and I had a couple questions. First off I acclimated the fish using the drip method for about 45-50min and then I placed them inside the tank. But I noticed that the Blue Tang looked like its color faded and it had tiny white...

    Ok, got a Powder Brown practically eating flakes outta my hand from quarrantine tank (QT). It is MAYBE med sized, and has been in QT for 6 days. Day one was a rather bad day for the guy. The fish was emptied from its arrival bag at my LFS into new bag with new water. Got home the new water ph...

    I got a Powder brown tang about 2 weeks ago in my 120 gallon. He hasnt stopped swimming in circles around the tank since i got him. All day he is just cruzing behind the rocks infront of the rocks in circles. I think he must really like the space compared to the fish store or something. The...

    I have been watching this Powder Brown Tang at my local Petco for over a month. He is the prettiest and most striking PBT I have ever seen. While I currently do not have the ideal set up for a Tang, I still dreamed of having him. Last night I went to look at him again, and to my dismay...he was...

    Hello to those who read I have been catching advice from many of you. I just came home from the military when I had my son. He has fallen in LOVE with the fish tanks...

    ... that you have ever given a fish of yours? Cmon, you know a lot of us do it - we think of stupid names like Nemo for our clown. Here I'd love to see people list the kind of fish, and their given name (plus any relevant story as to how the said fish acquired the name). In college I had a...

    I have a 200 gal tank with a 55 gal sump. After a tank crash when I used FWE (not FWE fault, just too much poison fm FW) I have a massive hair algae problem. I spent ALL last night pulling and brushing my rocks and things look better. I was given the Blenny and then bought the Foxface to help...

    My 240 fowlr has been up since January and my one spot foxface rabbitfish was my first fish. He was bright yellow in the beginning and happily grazed on algae throughout the rockwork. Later I added a royal gramma basslet. The basslet postures somewhat towards the foxface but nothing serious...
