Anyone has got any experience doing this? I have added a yellow tang 2 1.5 weeks ago he is now like a big boss in the tank. He wants to own the whole 132g 6 ft tank. That is unacceptable.
I got 10 chromis, 1 clown in the tank before added him. After that I added a bicolor blenny, a twin spot goby, a cleaner wrasse he doesn't seem to bother them. Then I thought well I am adding another naso tang 2 days ago. He kept on harrassing the naso using the side of his body to bump him. I since took the naso out and return to the LFS
Now I want to add a blue tang, that is my ultimate goal, it is like a "must have" fish to me. Will this be a problem? What worse the size of the blue tang is half the body size of the yellow tang. How would you guys suggest me doing this?
I currently use an eggcrates to separate my tank in the middle part (done this last night) thinking of giving half of that for the blue tang to get use to the tank and let the yellow tang to forget about the rockworks of the other half of the tank. Currently the YT seems "lost" he dare not go near the middle of the tank where the egg crates is but will sure be fine in a day time I think.
I am getting the blue tang today and planning to get it to settle in the other half of the tank. Do you guys think this is a good idea? Or you have any other idea other than returning the YT to the LFS
? I like this YT so much that I am not willing to let it go either as he is healthy and has got lots of personality.
Sorry for the lengthy post.
