I have a little problem. I want someone to tell me what I want to hear, however I don't think that's going to happen.
Here's the problem: I have a friend who has a gorgeous powder blue tang. We all know how hard they are to keep because of their inability to adjust to captivity. But he has had this fish for at least a year. It eats well and it's fat and healthy. He's been wanting to give it to me for quite some time because it picks on his blenny. I hadn't spoken with him in awhile (he lives about 45 miles away) and in the meantime fell in love with a kole tang at my local fish store and bought it.
My friend called yesterday and asked if I would still take this powder blue. So I did, and it's in my QT. The problem is that I have the kole tang in my display tank. The main tank is 125 gallons and it's long, rather than tall.
Whaddaya think? Any chance these two tangs might not fight? This is probably a dumb question, but I want them both. My friend was going to get rid of this powder blue no matter what, so I kind of, sort of, rescued it. But it's the healthiest powder blue I've ever seen. I have two algae clips and I can put nori on both ends of the tank and they are way different colors, but pretty close to the same size. Opinions?
Anyone live in the Vacaville, CA
area who has room for one of these tangs if they don't get along?
