Favorite Tang for the Reef Aquarium

I just wanted to run a poll and get some ideas on what people's favorite reef sturgeon fish was. Mine is by far the Sohal Tang; while they are highly aggresive IMO they are unrivaled in the WOW factor you get from their looks.

If your favorite tang isnt on the list just post the name of it.

Redsea Sailfins are a sweet tang! The best part about sailfins of any species, even the highly coveted and very rare Gem Tang, is that they are very hardy and fare well in aquariums

Since it isn't on the list and I have one I will vote for the Powder Brown tang...more hardy then the blue and doesn't get quite as large.

Purple Tang has always been my favorite for coloration and activity. Haven't had one since 94 though but when I move and upgrade it's going to be high on the list of "must have" fish.

What no sailfin tang? I went with the yellow because it is the easiest.

I also love the purple tang. The yellow is an aquarium staple and a very close second for me.
