Sorry to say you are right on. The LFS should be smacked for telling anyone a blue tang could be kept in a nano. I won't pile on, but there is trouble on the horizon.

Thanks for the suggestion on the strawberry anemone. There are approximately a half dozen each on two rocks. I'm just not sure how they would have been introduced to the tank. Aside from hermit crabs, I haven't introduced anything new to the tank. I have more concern about keeping the ever spreading brittle star population under control.

As far as the tang is concerned, my shop did not educate me at all at the time of purchase. I have had no problems with the tang (to this point), but would like to eventually move up to a larger tank.

Your tang will deeply appreciate that as they grow amazingly fast.

They(brittle stars) won't hurt anything either. A free cleanup crew, if there is such a thing.
