I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah,they are the moorish idols of tangs
Not that i'm trying to persuade you to get a purple,but IME,they are one of the more hardy and easiest to care for..had mine 5+ years ,,he's about 7 inches now.....they are the same species as yellows however ,,,so they may fight,,or they could be fine

I would love a purple tang, BUT they cost about 169$!! I can't rationalize that kind of money on one fish. :-( Plus I would be devastated if something happened to it, they are soo beautiful.

I would love a chevron tang too but they are $200 each! Eek!
