Well, my pics aren't great but here is my yellow tang. I find them to be very personable and hardy. This one is an eating machine. He was a bit thin when I got him (which is when this pic was taken) but he's made up for lost time.

I have a purple, regal, sailfin, and convict tang in my tank. The convict is the most personable fish I have. When I put nori in the tank it cleans the old nori from the clip for me so I can replace it. It also rubs against my hand regularly when I feed it.

That it very cool.

My tennitti tang loves to chase bubbles.

I have had a yellow and returned him because he bullied the other tank mates... luck of the draw I guess... so I got juvi Kole and a juvi Regal which were tank mates for years and I loved them both. My hippo was a family tank fav. but my Kole was my personal fav of all time... FUNNY FUN FISH! When I get a bigger tank, I hope to have another Kole and Hippo tang together.

My vote would be a pbt or an achilles... I just bought a achilles and he is now in my qt tank. He is eating flake food for me, but he does have ich...

Here's a photo of my sailfin from last January. He likes to nibble on the nori as I'm placing the clip back in the tank. This is one fast fish. Make me wish I had a bigger (longer) tank for him to swim in. I'm also amazed at how he squeezes through rock openings.

Purple Tang

I've had this purple tang for about 2.5 years and he is a great fish.
Very hardy, eats whatever is given and has no problems with the other fish.

Is a very active swimmer. When I introduced my clown the 3 stripe devil was dive bombing him, the tang actually would swim between them to chill things out.

Comes highly reccomended.
