this is your aquarium? what size is it? how many fish did you say? how much food are you putting in the tank and how often?

you are not comparing apples to apples.


i also never said it's not possible to keep tangs in pairs..obviously they have to reproduce somehow..this is not from immaculate conception.
you are spouting off that tangs should be kept in pairs in an overfed, overstocked 60 gallon tank thread. we are supposed to convince the OP that he's got too many fish. not suggest it's ok.

This is my 1500l Tank and the acans are from my Small Tank in thebsame System. My chelmon eats them!

I have One Site where you See the Fish without HQI and the other Side is lighted by 2 x 250HQI with T5.

Thats what i said! Top many fish for this Small Tank!!!! Sure!

My posting about the Tangs was General!

I suggest to Upgrade the Tank or get the Fish a better Home. I mean a lionfish is not better in this tank! Right!?

I can also Tell you Fish that would fit perfectly! Small gobbys, like trimmas or eviotas, amblygobius hektori or rainfordi, pseudochromis fridmani, Lots of apogons, some pipefish like dorrhyamphus excitus,
Or bangai cardinal, and many many more!

But size is not everthing. I saw really pretty Small Tanks.

They Fish are all quite old. With my Experience I would now not put Acanthurus species in my Tank again. Also triggers are Not nice ones if you keep them longer. They Start to swimm Strange ways. Cause of Beeing bored...

Yes. They Fight together against others. Especially in the evening when they want to spawn. It just Works Cause Lots of Food.
To keep the Water in good conditions I Change 200l a Week and use a Big Protein skimmer. But I still have righ po4 and no3. I found out that in my Case the Ratio between this two seems good. It should Be 1:10/1:20
