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

Good Luck with him!! I;ve had mine for almost a year and other than changing color from bright yellow to drab grey he has been a good tank mate. he gets a little grumpy and will lunge open mouthed at other fish but never bites or does any harm.

Twin Spot Gobies are great sand sifters. They'll go through scooping up sand all day trying to eat. Cool to watch in a mated pair.

Thank you the good part is that he does that because that means that he can defend himself because I have two damsels that like to pick on fish and chase them

Get a pistol shrimp to go with him. My shrimp moves the sand all over the place.I'm sure the sand on his side of the tank gets totally flipped once a month.
