I think that is a good decision and gives you room to observe without having to figure out any "whodunnit" issues should there be aggression.

Good choice on the fish selection, I would do the same and as already said keep an eye on the clowns. I'd start saving for the 120 as the PB will definitely need it as it grows in a couple of years max.
Good Luck

I figured this is the best option. As much as I love all my fish I think The Orange Shoulder will definitely be better off elsewhere. I e-mailed a local zoo about donating it and am waiting for a response. I know an LFS that may take it for their display tank. Worst case I can put it up for sale at an upcoming fish auction.

The fish I am keeping are the species I have always truly desired. The PB was bit of an impulse, but at that price I had to take the chance.

I will increase the size and frequency of my PWC until all are moved out.

Thanks,

I wish I lived out by you. I would take the Orange Shoulder off your hands yesterday. That's a beautiful specimen.

Salttanker,

That might be an option if I cannot find a local display tank where I can go view it. A LFS will take it for resale and give me some credit and they will resell it. I would rather know where it is going even if only through a pic. My fear is that someone else would buy it without being educated like I did.

If the zoos don't respond I may post it. I have never shipped a fish before, but is someone was willing to pay I might consider that as well If I knew it was going to a responsible aquarist.

you're right about the lfs. Anyone can buy it, so you will never know the fate of your little friend there.
See how much shipping would be and PM me. I may take him off your hands if the local Zoo doesn't respond.

Mike

Quick update PBT is doing great! Aggressively competes for food (dry and prepared) and so far no battles. Actually hangs out with other tangs part of the time.

Still plan to aquire 90gal and move other tangs out.
