It would be in the best interest of the fish if you tell them what size tank you have. Not trying to be a pain but that`s just not a good idea to put a tang in a 12 gallon tank. Researching your fish prior to getting them will help out alot and help you to understand their needs.

Im probably going to get a yellow clown goby for mine. You are really pretty limited on fish in a 12g. Even two fish in there is going to make your tank a lot of work to keep the water quality up.

red scooter blenny is a lot like a mandarin, they feast on copepods, constantly. they're known to wipe out a tanks population, then starve to death.

for a 12G tank unless you're gonna supplement pods or spend the quality time training on frozen foods (which might be a failed attempt) i'd suggest against it.

i tried to ask on here if i could keep a mandarin or scooter blenny in my 14G biocube and was talked out of it, as stubborn as i was =]

so yeah unless you're gonna buy copepods or attatch a rather large refugium to your tank i'd advise against it

=/ sorry you're getting shot down, maybe a firefish goby? mine has lots of personality
