That poor thing is in terrible shape. Make sure it gets a lot of food! Keep nori on a clip.

Very cool of you to rescue that Tang! Good job!

The thing that bothers me is that places like Petco sell fish like Yellow Tangs, Sailfin Tangs, Hippos, etc, but don't even sell large enough tanks to support those fish. People assume that they will be fine because they are purchasing from a reputable dealer, but aren't educated in what is required to maintain those fish.

I actually cant imagine how much better the tang is feeling now you have him. How to save a life! You sir are inspirational and you make me proud to be human.

Now that it's been picked up I want to know what kinda person had it? Was the lighter and underwear a good indication that the person was an oddball or was it like a 58 year old housewife? Was it a gangster? How bout a ninja, was the owner a ninja? Cmon give us something!!!

Good for you Robert to make an attempt if saving him. Hope he makes it.. Didn't realize how big he was until I saw the video.. Man I can't believe he last as long as he did in that tank


Thumbs up to Robert!

Thanks so much for rescuing the Tang. It's hard to believe that guy serviced tanks for a living and had that poor Tang coupled up in there for 5 months! You did a gr8 service sir...
