Well if you're asking if I'd rather have 8 chromis or 1 naso tang, I'd rather have the Naso tang

My vote was for anthias actually. Much bigger than chromis and alot more colorful.

But yeah the tang would be awesome too.

My opinion, for what it's worth, is the tang should be fine in there. That's just based on what I've learned being on the forums. I'm sure the Tang experts will chime in soon.

A big decision, good luck with your choice! And of course pictures..

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

Why is this borbonius so expensive? Sure it's rare. But looks ugly

Very rare, due to the depth they are native to. Interesting mannerisms, and they are unique. I mean, how many other pink fish with greenish yellow spots and fins do you know of? Lol They are a conversation piece.

You may think it's ugly but thats you're opinion. The price is a little steep but I'm sure a few people will spend the scratch. But it looks like you can save a little cheddar since you don't like the fish. I don't like tangs so I guess I'll use the money I save from not buy'n those ugly fish and get my awesome look'n anthias

Lol, it is all personal preference. I am going to eventually get one, but I am keeping tangs too. See, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Naso Tangs grow very large....~18" adult they also do not retrack their knives as other tangs do. With the amount of tangs you have now I would not advise adding one. IMO

What If I removed a yellow tang and the tomini tang? Could I then add the naso?
