Order of fish!

I'm planning to add a Coral Beauty and a Regal Tang to my tank before the end of the year.

Which would you add last - the Tang or the Angel?

I've already got an Ocellaris Clown and a Banggai Cardinal in there.

Maybe you should do it same time...Sounds like your system is aged and should be able to handle having two additional fishes added at once. Plus both fishs aren't that expensive.

did you order the clown and the cardninal? I am curious about ordering fish. How well they handle the shipment. etc.

I hear that its always best to add the tangs last since they are rather territorial. How big is your tank?

I cant really do it at the same time for QT reasons (dont want more than 1 fish in QT at once so I can control the water better), my system is 6 months old.

Rocket: I meant "order" as in which ones to put in first etc! :P I've never ordered any fish, got all mine from the LFS.

My tank is 38gal, but I'm planning to upgrade before too long.

Then wait till you upgrade your tank before order the tang. They get BIG! and need space.
