they are all pretty much susceptible. i like purple tangs, regals, powder browns, and i do like the powder blue, but those tend to be real mean and nasty after a while.

I think that powder blues and regal tangs get affected the worst

Yeah still not to sure. I really like the Achilles. But that's a big risk I think. I had a regal once but over medicated it. And it croaked.

i don't see too many achilles tangs doing well in closed systems. i had one and it didn't last too long in my 195.

i have kept plenty of tangs and not used a UV sterilizer and didn't have many issues. just the achilles actually. the presence of a UV sterilizer wouldn't have helped.

Don't think so. I've herd many ppl say that they are beneficial when you have a tang. I wouldn,t want one otherwise. Kills to much good bacteria

quarantining the fish and treating the ich would be the only way to get rid of it. there is no bacteria in the water column, so the UV sterilizer isn't going to kill any bacteria. it's only going to kill whatever passes through it, and the odds of eradicating ich with a sterilizer is probably in the millions.
