Blue Hippo Tang

I have a 2.5" Blue Hippo Tang. It is very happy and plump. But wow, I thought the 4" porcupine puffer that I used to have was a poop factory. Get a load of BHT's man. They POOP! I have a 2" maroon clown now and a 2.5" Blue Hippo Tang. Ive been running my setup for 1 year and 4 months now.

check this out though, here was my specimen back when I started (When I was still an excited newbie who knew nothing):

3 yellow tail damsels
1 porcupine puffer
1 red tail file fish
1 longhorn cowfish
1 white spotted puffer
1 picasso trigger
1 false percula
3 turbo snails
1 large hermit crab
1 feather duster

Wow!

Now I am down to two: Maroon clown and the Blue Hippo Tang. Last week, I just donated my only remaining original fish: a 3.5" plump, healthy, and beautiful Picaso Trigger. Heart Breaker. But he poops a lot so I had to let him go. Also, he's not reef safe for the most part. He nips at anything on the rock but algae.

Do you have a most dominating pooper in your tank? Share the load!!

Yes, my Hippo, which is about 4in long, craps a lot as well. It almost looks like seaweed. The fish go nuts over it to thinking it is food. lol
