Tang Question

Just wondering can you mix a sailfin and a red sea sailfin.

sorry, IMO that is not big enough for those 2
If you want two tangs, try a different body type for one of them. Like a Naso, Kole,
Convict for example. Your odds of peace and harmony would increase tremendously.

As Hara said ...try a different body type. I had issues introducing similar body types. I think you would always have aggression issues if you got two. PS. My convict tang is the most personable fish in the tank. It will even let me "pet" him/her.

Thought I would tack a similar tang question onto this thread. I have a 120 gallon reef tank (220 lbs LR) with a Blue Regal (Hippo) Tang. Would a Powder Blue work in a tank of this size with a hippo. I've asked this before, but I'm still looking for as much info as I can get on it. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have a hippo and was going to add a PBT. The guy I was purchasing it from told me he did not want to sell it to me because I would regret it due to aggression. I did some asking and reading and then purchased a blonde naso. My tank is 525 so I would definitely avoid it in a 120 unless it was the only tang.

Thanks Brenden. That is one thing I'm concerned about (aggression from the PBT). I'm also worried about stressing the PBT in a 120 gal with another tang already in it. I keep getting mixed feedback on this, but I'm thinking my tank is just too small for a PBT and a Hippo. The Hippo is doing well and I don't want to mess him up. I like the Naso also, and would go that way, but I think my tank is definitely too small for that tang. Another option I've been thinking is the Kole. Maybe that would be a better choice as far as compatability with the hippo in a 120 gal tank.

I had a Kole and Hippo in a 55g for a few years... they got along fine in the tank and I never had aggression issues with them... even in a tank that was too small to house them both.

The Hippo and Kole are my favorites BTW!

I love my convict tang. It is the most personable fish I have and will even let me pet it. I have a pic of him in my gallery. Other options are a yellow, or a foxface. You will have no agression problems with those.
