yes, the amount of bioload was commented on, both in this thread and another one that was started on appropriate fish for a 55 gallon.....

If you go to a LFS, you will see the blue tangs just hovering in one spot. Because the tanks are too small, once in a display they are very skiddish, quick movement and can lap a tank with one whip of their tail.

If you are not set on a YT, do not get a blue tang.

YTs are not aggressive provided you give them a) space b) do not mix with other same specie tangs and c) add them last

I have a Yellow and a Hippo in my 90. They are inseparable. I was concerned because I had the Yellow in there first, but they immediately became best friends, and they swim constantly next to my Heni butterfly. It's really amazing to watch all 3 of these in constant tandem. Anyways, that is my .02.

Tank: 90 Gal w/ 10 Gal DIY fuge, 100+ lbs LR, 4+ inch sandbed.
Fish:yellow tang, hippo tang, heni butterfly, hermits and snails.
Misc: 4x65 watt PC lighting, seaclone skimmer, 3 powerheads, uv sterilizer.
