tang behavior

  1. Reef Fish
    I added a sail-fin tang to my 55 about a month ago. I find it interesting that he does not like the engineer blenny that already lives in the tank. sometimes he will get in front of the blennys hole and flare his fins out and shake his tail at the blennys face. I would not have expected him...

    Has anyone kept a clown tang ,Acanthurus lineatus? Do they live up to their nasty reputation? I am thinking about getting one but dont want something that will wipe out me tank. I have a 100 gal with 4 other tangs( ring tail,orange shoulder,scopas,chocolate) that have all been in their awhile...

    I have a Yellow Tang that is acting quite peculiar. Every time I come close to the tank he freaks out and his face turns black. If I keep my distance he is fine and looks very bright yellow. Is he stressed or is there something else going on? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
