I really like both the regal tang and the kole tang, but I was wondering which fish would be the better choice. Which one is more hardy, isn't territorial towards other fish, and is best at keeping algae under control?
I recently purchased a saltwater set up from a guy who was getting out of saltwater. I took all his fish, live rock etc. He had what he called a blue hippo tang in a 55 gallon aquarium and said that for the last 6 months he thought it was sick but it eats and isnt bothering the other fish...
I've got a 90 gallon bare bottom tank, mostly sps. Currently I have a false perc and a royal gramma. I had a regal blue tang but he died a few months ago. Anyone have suggestions for reef safe fish? I was thinking of a yellow tang, another clown, blue chromis, cardinal fish. Ideas?
Hopefully this is the right thread to be asking....
Ok, this is the 2nd salt tank I have done, the first was over 10years ago....

My thoughts are this for filtration and what not
-Fluval 205 (already have)
-Pentair Aquatics (Lifeguard #FB300) Fluidized bed...
Just wondering what success people have with the regal blue tang. I have read mixed reviews. I would like to add one last fish and am considering this one. I have a 120g with a yellow tang, 2 clowns, a royal gramma, 3 blue green chromis, a yellowtail damsel and scooter blenny. Tank has been...
I wanted to share something that I saw a couple of weekends ago. Its a perfect example of what NOT to do.
A young couple were in looking to get some new stuff for their 6 week old nanocube. They already had a yellow tang and a clownfish and some live rock. They brought in a water sample and...

I ordered a 90 gallon reef ready AGA tank today. Would've got the 75 gallon but the 90 was on sale for the same price. It should arrive in 3 days. It's official, the 90 gallon tank build has begun :banana:
Ongoing list as I take down my tank. Moving down to a cube so that I can get the tank out of my basement and into my living room.
Live Rock - $3.00 / lb. I have a combination of base rock, live rock, texas limestone, tufa, and agrocrete. I would guess about 80lb's total between all of it...
I have a 125g tank, 200+ lbs LR and a 30g macroalgae refuge. I also have hard and soft corals and anemones. Tank is about 7 months old and doing very well. Below are the fish that I currently have. I'm thinking that i'm topped out on fish load. What do you think?
1 Yellow Tail Damsel
I'm setting up a 150gal extra tall drilled tank (48"Wx24"Dx31"T). I've decided to go with a Euroreef skimmer, not sure what sixe yet, as big as I can afford. The one step that I'm really not sure about yet is the lighting. I'm looking at a couple of MH/VHO combo retro kits but have some...
3.5-4 inch sailfin tang for sale, eats like a champ, gets along pretty well with other tangs (he's in with a regal blue tang now). Real fun to watch.
1.5 inch royal gramma for sale, a little shy, but really colorful.
When my 1st child was born I thought I could still try to manage and keep my fish tank. But now that my wife is pregnant with our second child and we're thinking of moving, I don't think I can manage. Therefore, I'm getting out for now and will maybe come back at a later date. Thanks to...
I just added a yellow tang to my 72gal tank on tuesday. I have a regal blue tang in there. I put him in about a week ago. Yesterday I noticed the yellow tang is hidding a lot and not eating. They both were getting along just fine. He looks healthy and ok. Any ideas for his behavior?
My fiance's post:
The craziest thing is happening in my tank. My regal blue tang is hosting my frogspawn. Check out the picture. And no, it was not just swimming by, he stays in there all day. The funny thing is the clowns won't host anything in my tank (1 bubble tip, 1 condy, frogspawn...
