    My 125G has been up for nearly 4 months, I freaking love it! Everything seems to be going well. Currently I have a foxface, a lawnmower blenny, a little damsel and a 6 line wrasse. I also have a frogspawn and a dicosoma. I was considering getting a pair of clowns and a blue tang but I fear my...

    Real quick explanation. I was watching my tank tonight and everyone was doing great. I went and ate dinner, came back and looked. My yellow tang has what appears to be spots or patches on his fins and lower belly. I can't think of anything that would have caused it other than my RBTA stinging...

    I knew that title would get everyone's attention! So here's my tank: 40 breeder with 20 sump, so a 60 system. Rock-work is not very "dense", and allows for a lot of swimming room. Could I, get a Yellow Tang (when the time is right) as a juvenile, then trade/sell/give him away once I feel that he...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and have a question. I have a RedSea 250 66 Gallon tank. I bought a Powder blue tang and a bright maroon clownfish. I have a regular clown fish, a small puffer, a adult damsel and a baby damsel also in the tank. They tend to get along but my problem is this. The PB...

    Hi All, I have a 135 gallon educational tank in a middle school and the yellow tang has a tattered or eroded dorsal fin. I'm feeding high quality food, including algae sheets (which I don't think it touches honestly). It's eating well otherwise and on average only one fish seems to be even a...

    Hi guys, I am starting a new tank from scratch. I used to have a 30gal one before for 5 years but had to sell it while moving form condo to a house. Now got lots of space in basement for a new startup. While I am changing the floor in basement I am looking for a new tank to order. Basically my...

    Yesterday, I added a flame angelfish to my 75 gal reef. I already had a kole yellow eye tang who has been a resident for about a month. The second I added the flame angel, the tang actively chased him around the tank. I added the flame angel at night after the lights had gone off, so I just let...

    I'm looking for advice on stocking order for a new aquarium. I'm planning to pick up a bigger tank in the next week, probably 125-150G. I realized too late that a 75G tank is too small for a blue hippo tang. :doh: I'd also like to get a fire fish, a couple of long fin banner fish, flame angel...

Right when I got back with the tank I watched...

    I have a FOWLR 50 gallon tank. I plan on eventually adding coral. I have about 50lbs of LR so there is lots of open space. I'm looking to add my last fish. I want something larger and colorful so probably a dwarf angel or tang. The fire dwarf angel looks cool... These are the fish I...

    My tang doesn't seem go like the sea weed, none seem go like the omega one pellets much, they will not touch flake food but they all love frozen cubes of brine shrimp. The goby and tang will eat left over pellets in the sand and on rocks. But if I put the brine shrimp in they all come out go...

    Hey guys I could use some quick advice, or reassurance rather. 90g tank. So I bought a yellow tang that's about 4 inches give or take a little. A week later I bought a Blue Fin Angel who is probably in the 4.5 inch range. Anyways, when I put the angle in, the tang was checking him out and...

    Hi guys, so I'm officially freaked out and worried. I came home last night and I couldn't find my powder blue tang ANYWHERE! I looked all over my tank without moving any rocks. I looked around my tank even though it has a lid. I looked in the overflows, sump, and around the rocks. I can't find...
