Hey Rich, just a little input.
The Powder tangs don't have such a great track record in home aquaria, from what I read.
Just thought you should know, if you didn't!

Thanks for the input. Since he has been in an established tank for 2 years now I think he has a better chance of survival than if I bought one from a LFS. A good friend of mine on our local forum (works for a good LFS and is extremely knowledgeable) has walked me through this one and helped me decide. We will see how he does. If he shows signs of not doing well I will re-home him quick.

Cool, just wanted you to know, if you didn't!
I agree, if he's already happy, you've got a much better chance.
Good luck with them.

I love my little old man. I mean lawn mower blenny. It's so funny to see the little lip marks on the glass where he has cleaned
