Clown Tangs

Hi, since I have upgraded to my 220g, I have been looking at this 4" Clown Tang at my LFS. It is $50.00. So I am wondering if these fish are completly a waste of money or not? I have talked to a few people online that have kept Clown Tangs for many years, so they are impossible. I upgraded from my 55g which has been running for about 3-4 months, and have had fish in there for 3 months. So please help since I am going there tommorrow.

IF YOU HAVENT KEPT ONE, OR DONT KNOW VERY MUCH, DONT JUST COME IN HERE AND SAY THEY ARE DIFFICULT. I KNOW THAT!!!

Very aggressive. If you decide you can handle the difficulty and low survival rate it should be the very last fish added. Even then it my kill your other fish.

clown tang

I used to have a clown tang in my 30 gallon. It was peacfull, and cool to look at. It ended up just dying under a rock for some reason. I guess it got scraped on a rock. It wasnt hard to take care of either. It wasnt aggresive at all, but you never kno.

You had a clown in a 30 gallon? These fish should be in a minimum 150 gallon tank. I am not guessing why it died.

Never heard of them not being aggressive. I was going to get one but everyone I talked to told me to avoid it because it would be too aggression in my size tank. Even the fish store told me to avoid it because of aggression issues. Sounds like you already made your mind up.

Well, I can easily get another fish. I just dont think aggression is solid enough for an absolute no. I know I sound like a retard, but I REALLY want this fish, so if someone has a good answer... PLEASE SPEAK UP!

I've never have one of those and i don't know very much about them. I just wanted to come here and say that they are difficult.

JK. I've once asked a guy at my LFS about those fishes and he said they are aggressive and shouldn't be kept in a peaceful tank

I would think as long as the aquascape is well built for other fishes to hide/call home, then there shouldn't be much of an issue. I think it's when fish can see each other all the time that aggressive fish seem more aggressive than normal.
