A cooler would've been better than that 6 gallon tank! He'll probably feel like a king in your 60 gallon for now! Poor little guy. What did the guy say when you picked him up? Do you know how long he's been suffering?

Dryer didnt work, ill give him that. But it was outside. He said he serviced tanks for a living, got the fish from a customer who didn't want it anymore and had put it in there 5 weeks ago. Ill post pictures tomorrow.

Whoever bought this tang is nothing short of a hero.

+1, lets think what the first 4 fish/corals bought for new tanks are, Clown fish, Anemone (because Clown Fish have to have one, lol) Tang, and a Mandarin. And you are right most people don't want to hear it, because their tank is different somehow. Or my nem is doing fine, I have had him a long time, 6 months :-(

Not to shoot your hopes down but a 120 is actually to small for a blue tang. They say 125 minimum but I always say the next standard size up from recommended is when people should start thinking of getting certain fish. This tang is 6-7 inches long so 5-6 feet long is still not enough in my eyes.
