after ready the horror stories on these forums I don't think I would ever not put a fish in a QT first ever again!

brndfrb, I was just pulling your chain.

Clamknuckle I say go for it, but I do agree about qt. I believe it was the Yellow Tank that brought velvet into my system back in Dec.....no fun.

Clam in the wild yellow tangs form schools and swim and graze all day. So in a closed system it IMO is very important to give them as much space as possible. They also seem to have a fast metabolism, and digest food very fast IME. I keep 3 yellows in my 125, and they swim all day long back and forth. You could keep a tang in any size aquarium, but in my opinion the tank should at least be 6' for long term health, and a stress free environment. I have read this, been told this, and I have to agree with it. It dosen't mean you have to though.

I would look for the healthiest tang in the smallest size you can find. One that was caught in Hawaii seem to do the best. Look for one around two inches and he will grow into the tank. Give him plenty of greens since this is a new tank.

I am set on my fish and the balance is good with them getting along. It it is fun to go shopping and look for the next fish as long as you keep your wallet in the pocket.

50 gallon saltwater fish only...1 mated pair yellowtail damsels, neon dottyback, tomato clown, huma trigger, lemonpeel angel, 12 stripe wrase, bi-color blenny, dozen or so hermit crabs-scarlet and mexican, cerith snails, turbo snails, orange linkia starfish, 50 plus pounds of purple-pink coraline encrusted rock and a few mushrooms.

Redsea prism protein skimmer, 404 Fluval, UGF with two 201 powerheads.

7 gallon tank with 6 pounds of live rock and countless brittlestars, 5 hermit crabs, snails and 1 False Percula Clown fish and Camel Back Dancing shrimp
