Is this too risky? <really hope not..>

Hello everybody. So my upgrade is done. I'm happy with the results. My 125 looks nice<you can see thread on Saltwater reef aquaria forum>. I always loved Powder Brown Tank. In my 90 I had maroon clown, hippo tang, yellow tang, flame angel,midas blenny mandarin goby and strawberry basslet. I knew I can not have Powder in that system. Yesterday I went to LFS and they had Powder Brown. I could not resist and now he is in my QT. I'm still not sure if I did a right thing. What you guys think? I 'm always carefull, quarantine my fishes, never had problem with ick. Yellow and hippo< some say ick magnet as brown, looks great>. I'm worry about yellow chasing brown. On the other hand Powder Brown is twice a size yellow and hippo, wich is good< powder is much less agresive then those too> With every fidding all my fishes get garlic, selcon and zoe. Maybe that is the reason they stay healthy. I love that Powder. Should I give it a shot? I see a lot tanks with diffrent tangs. What will You guys do? Thanks.I will do my best.

I have three tangs in my 125. It took a little time but they are best of friends now. You`ll have a better chance in a 6 foot tank. Hope all works out.

Eventually the powder brown will dominate over the others...time will tell, but all tangs will bicker throughout the day (social status').

I had a powder brown in with a yellow and a yellow belly hippo and had no problems from any of them. The Powder Brown, is less aggressive than the powder blue. I agree with Innovator that time will tell.

Just want to mention that I keep him in QT but like with others i do not put any medication in it like copper or formaline, no hyposalnity either. I do what you guys teach me " if it looks fine don't try fix it". So I just watch him carefully and he looks great.

Technically that is just a holding tank. A QT is meant to medicate. I personally disagree with not medicating, but good luck to you nonetheless

Personally I agree Artur. I dont treat for anything unless I know what I`m treating for. When I QT before they go in the tank I just observe first to see if they have anything. Just my experience.
