Is that a yellow tang I see in the background? You do know that yellow tangs and most any other tang need a 6 foot long tank right?

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

The yellow tang along with the niger trigger are a for sure no yellow tank needs at least 6+ feet along with the trigger keeping a trigger in that small of the tank will cause problems don't be shocked if you come home once and the trigger just loses it and kills everyone, it's also unhealthy to the fish they get stressed more there for are prone to diseases I'm sure like most stores they wouldn't tell you that cuz there just in it for the money there for its really important to do a lot of research before you take on the responsibility of an animals life hope you do the right thing

So you don't see nothing wrong with keeping a tang&trigger in a 40 gallon?

Those fish won't survive long term. I would get more rock and cure it in a separate bin then add it after I removed the tang and trigger.

a tang in a 40g is a huge no no. You will run into issues soon enough.
