Too fast to have one in less than a 125G tank. Hope yours is bigger than that.

Someone in this thread thinking about putting one in a 55g???? Pls don't.

mwilliams - do you have a QT tank?

I have a 42hex saltwater tank just sitting there for now nothing in it except for Sand (live) and LR. I just did a very major water change in that tank cleaned the walls because they where horrible looking all brown and that was about 2 wks ago. Yes I do have a 55gal for now I was just thinking if I got a very small one about 2in that he would be okay till I can get my bigger tank but now that you said they grow fast he will have to wait till then. I am going for a 180gal. slowley buying my supplies for that tank. Just picked up a used PM-R36 sump/refug for $175 and getting a (used) 72" Nova Extreme Pro it is on somewhat layaway plan.

I'm really not sure how fast they grow to tell you the truth. I've just seen them get very large and the thought of a naso in such a small tank gave me the "willies".

Believe me, all it takes is one sick fish added to an established tank that kills others and is VERY hard to catch and treat with all the rocks in there to make you wish you employed QTing new arrivals. Others can profess to some degree of luck only when they say they've fully stocked a tank and had no ick or marine velvet, or other cummunicable disease break out.

Good luck.

I am not the originator for this post I was just tagging along because I have been very interested in getting a Naso Tang so I do not know what size tank tmkx3 has.

I can use the 42gal hex tank as the QT with no problem there is not to many rocks in there.. I had been using it to treat the Desjardin for Hole in the head and he had been in there for well over 3 months and now I finally moved him back to the DT that is why I did the major cleaning of that tank.
I could put one in there a little 2-3" one till I get the big tank and that way he will have been in QT for till I get the tank within the next 3 to 4 wks....

He is eating enough algae to keep him going for now, once he is settled and hungry he will eat. I would stick with the red nori sheets.

My convict tang took about 4 days to start eating, and it was just nibbles. Within a week he was eating regularly. My regal tang started eating day two.
