I have a falco hawkfish and he has been a model citizen. he never ate any shrimp or messed with my fish, even my mandarin was fine with him. he was in a 29g biocube with about 5 other fish and is now living large in my 180g.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Would he be ok in my 20g?
