Got my LAST fish!!!!!! Black Durgeon Triggerfish!!!!!

I got a black durgeon!!!!! I was going to get a powder blue but it had NO personality, and this guy was in the same tank, and he is AWSOME. Hes like 6" long and insane. My niger picked on him but it did nothing and it looked at him like "r u kidding"? Cause the nigers like half the size. I know when they all grow up the tank will be overstocked but I will give away fish/upgrade if I can when I move out. I dont have any pics but will hopefully get some. What you guys think?!?!?!

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

Post pictures? You can directly upload them from your computer by using the "advanced" button below or you can use a free hosting site like I do, photobucket. You upload to there and then just paste a link in the message and it shows up.

Wait, thats right, youre the one with the thread about ich. I have no idea why you would introduce a new fish to a tank with ich.

There is only one way to get rid of it and its to treat the fish outside the main tank and leave the tank EMPTY for at least 6 weeks. It may seem to get better but it's gonna be lingering in there until it strikes again, and by then you might have more fish to expose.

You really need to get a handle on the ich before adding any more livestock.

Not trying to be mean at all, so sorry if it sounds that way. Just want you to have success and youre not co-operating LOL
