Ah Dan sorry to hear about the yellow tang. That's a strange one, especially if he was grazing on the hair algae. Did you buy the regal and the yellow from the same place? Might be worth going else where.

Might be worth a shot mate, or try buying one from someone that is selling one from a tank they have at home. That's what I did with my regal, I brought him from someone that had him for 4 years, brought him as a baby. Mine is fine no problems with him at all. My yellow and regal get on well together and both are greedy little sods lol.

Lol yeah I was trying to buy a mature hippo like 4-5 in off a guy that lives near me but he's being a lil ridiculous with his asking price so that's a no.

My friend that works at Petco can order me whatever I want usually and they arent always babys either so I'm gonna give that a try and see what happens

Ah a greedy seller lol you do find that sometimes.
Good luck with the next one. Don't forget to make sure they are feeding well before you buy.

Here's a few pics of my new tang I bought about a week ago. He's a lot bigger than the previous one I had. A lot meatier and healthier looking as well

Very nice Dan. My first yellow didn't make it and the second was bigger. He is still king of the reef. Always in motion.
