Yes, Early on, but unfortumately it became infected with ich and did not make it. I think you would be ok with current tank mates. recommend long QT though.

They are a docile tang, relatively shy, they like to graze rocks and will eat most nuisance algaes. They do not get very large and would be a nice addition to what you have. Be sure to supply it with dried seaweed.

sounds good. i have a bunch of different nori ready for a grazer. i have been thinking about that tang because of the smaller size. i know many people keep tangs in a 75 and it seems to be okay, but when i look at our tank i just can imagine a big tang swimming around in there. i like the small fish in a big ocean look. lots of room to swim for them. like i said though, nothing wrong with a tang in a 75. i dont want to start any opinion wars

thanks for the info

I know it is not recomended, but I kept two tangs in a 75g for close to a year.

I have had mine for about 5 years. Very hardy fish and goes well with another different tang. I now have 3 tangs in my 125 and they get along fine. Kole tangs are a good addition
