You all make the assumption that I intend to keep this tang and friends until it can't turn around. Poor and yes, arrogant, assumption.

I've kept tanks for ten years now. Although I won't claim to be the "experts" on this board, I've learned a thing or two and I approach this hobby quite academically. Also, I'm a year round diver and observe these animals in their natural settings with amazement and a great deal of respect.

I'm lucky enough, here in so-cal, to have access to many fine quality LFSs which I trade with frequently. I also have a few fellow aquarists I trade with as well. When I have an animal that is inappropriate for the setting at its CURRENT STAGE, I trade the specimen. If I have an animal that appears to be unhealthy - for whatever reason - I find a new home for them BEFORE I injure them. My fresh tank has rotated endless cichlids that I've raised to amazing standards. I just returned a yellow tang when he hit almost 5" and replaced him with a 2.5" Sohal that will go to my friend's 280g when he's good and ready - and not when presumptuous people make their misinformed judgments.

Of course, I'm saying this in the nicest possible way

Ok, we were just giving you suggestions on what will be happy and what will not. You didn't inform us that you planned on moving them when they got too big. I guess that was an arrgant assumption, on my part.
Please don't take offense, we are not a LFS trying to make money off of you, we are here to share our experiences and knowledge, for free.
Please do not let this topic go sour.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

It is your job to give us information that is pertinent to helping you. We are not psychic. NO ONE here was being arrogant. We were working with the information supplied.

It is also quite easy and convenient to change a story on what the plans are after the fact.
