After I lost the other two I did some more research and found out that if they are in a small system there is a greater tendency for aggression And to feed them multiple times a day to relieve some of the tension. Just food for thought...

Not sure if I'm going to try to add a few more or not I've read more than a few instance where they slowly picked off the weakest link until there was 1. Fortunately they only cost a few bucks but I hate killing the little guys...

They cruise around and pick at algae.
I noticed the change as well. Likewise, Vividaquariums has changed tank requirements for many of the species it sells. They used to have a yellow tang as needing 60 gallons and now it's 100.

Contrary to what I said in the beginning I might add a bottom dweller and a percher. Thinking goby/blenny type of combo. Reason is my Anthias likes to have a lot of swimming room which she now has and I would like to keep it that way.

Very cool fish. About 6 months ago I had an opportunity to get a mated pair with a pistol shrimp they were with. I regret not getting them.

Ahh that would've been awesome! Also thinking Neon goby and may be a tail spot blenny. Those are small fish and I feel comfortable adding a couple. I used to have a Neon goby, loved her color. Unfortunately she kept harassing my clowns trying to clean them so I took her to LFS. They sold her in 2 days which made me happy. She was very hardy too.

Thanks. LFS had it just labeled as Christmas Wrasse and it looks like a Halichoeres claudia. He buried himself in the sand after about 45 seconds of checking out the tank. I will take pics of him when he comes out. Originally was going to get McCoskers flasher wrasse but I liked Christmas due to its green coloration.
