Over a week ago i bought a blue regal tang and a yellow tang. We put the regal tang in first on a sat and then sunday we bought a yellow tang and put him in, all was ok untill 2 days later both tangs started fighting and the blue tang got white spot. Now i dont have a lot of exsperience with SW as we have only been doing this since dec 2008 but i was warned in the shop if i have theses two fish together there was a chance they could fight, but i took the risk and now i wished i took the advice they gave me.
We where lucky because our LFS took our regal tang back.

Our yellow tang now seems alot happyier but he does have a few whitespots on his fins from the regal tang but they are now going.The shop keeper said to keep an eye on him feed him well and do a bigger water change just so the tang has a better chance of fighting the parasites off. And my cleaner shimp are doing what they should by giving him a clean lol.

Anyway my advice is listen to people who now what they are on about and have had a lot of exsperience in SW, i know i will next time.
