Bad luck for tangs!

My newest fish, yellow tang, has been nipping at my corals. I leave nori in there and he'll eat it but he still picks on the corals. This is why I got rid of my whitecheek tang. I guess i'll take him to an LFS. I think I might try a naso tang!

Tangs don't eat coral, but they may nibble on the algae that could be growing on the coral. This can be beneficial to the coral as the tang cleans the coral of this growth.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

agree with Tfish.. when I add new corals every one is picking at it and the crabs will bee all over it also. This happens mostly when the coral is mounted on a rock.
