Sorry dude, very poor choice for your tank. This fish, and tangs in general, require a much larger tank.
What happened to the clown? I would be very hesitant to add anything else until you figure that out. I can appreciate your enthusiasm but please slow down and research your fish BEFORE you add them. Impulse buys at the pet store are one of the biggest temptations in this hobby. Develope a stocking list before hand and stick to it.
I wish people would keep to themselves when it comes to this. Or at least ask more questions before coming to a conclusion about somebody across the country or world who you don't even know.
Oh look here, I just happen to be setting up a 125 gallon www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=87755
Plus what would you rather have happen? Me buy the tang and give it as best a home as I can provide, or either it sits in the tank at the crappy lfs
and dies, or somebody who has absolutely no idea what they are doing buys it and it dies. Hmm....welll...let me see...
I figure it's 3 inches long right now, and he will be fine in this tank for several months before he goes into a much larger tank.
No those are not ick spots. I took that picture when he was sleeping. The lights were off and when they sleep, like most fish, they alter their colors a bit. This one happens to have spots when it's sleeping. If it does develope ick, it's going to get dipped.
As for my Clown...Arron got sucked up into one of my powerheads...poor dude... I was out of town that day and when I got home I couldn't find him anywhere....I checked behind the tank and on the ground...then checked inside the powerheads and there he was...He lived for a day after...but died in the night. That was a really bad day for me...
