I have a yellow tang. I've had it for 2 weeks now. Is doing very good. I think they are hardy. He's in with a blue eyed tang and a niger trigger(I hate that fish).

these fish are mostly peaceful

I have a yellow tang and it gets on great with all my fish and just loves my scarlet shrimp. My only problem .....my live rock is now void of all life..Shame that.

I love my yellow tang!!! He is very healthy and happy in my reef. He adds a bright splash of color and is always out swimming. He does rule the tank though, I would add him last. I give him lots of nori on a clip. The good thing about yellow tangs is you can tell their health by looking at them. They should be bright yellow, not faded or skinny.

Well would i consider my Yellow Tang hardy.....Hmm well i would say mine is EXTREMELY hardy! They will get very aggressive towards other fish if introuduced first into the tank, definitly would add them last. Mine has survived 2 ich outbreaks the second time it was so bad his entire body was covered along with his fins and gills, he didnt look yellow but looked white. I surely thought he was going to die, but he LIVED. And is still alive today. I would have to say its one of the most "hardy" fish i have ever had. My mom purchased one online, with barely any water in the bag on arrival he was sideways in the bag. It looked as though a mac truck hit him his fins were all torn up also thought he was going to die for sure also, but hes still alive. I do agree to add them LAST for fish into a tank. HTH

I've had my Yellow Tang for 5 years already with no problems whatsoever. That is of course, because I've never tried to introduce any other tang into the tank. It also eats everything I've ever used for food, but it requires lots of greens. I highly recommend.

125gal. megaflow. Fish Residents:
Yellow Tang -(Junior), Flame Angel -(Flamey)
Bicolor Blenny -(Butch), Randall Jawfish -(Jaws)
Lawnmower Blenny -(Lenny), Talbot's Damsel -(Dottie), Tomato Clown -(Ketchup)
Nameless fish include, Neon Blenny, Singapore Shrimp Goby, Yellow Tail Damsel, 1 Skunk Cleaner Shrimps, purple pseudochromis.
