i will QT for sure!!!! i lost my really cool green clown goby to ich. he brought it to my main tank. i had to QT him and my clown for 8 weeks. i learned my lesson. i have lots of rock, caves and places for a fish to swim, i need to update my profile, but i would say about 70lbs live rock now. so you opinion is that the tang would be okay for a couple of months?

Jasson, you caould go with the powder brown tang. According to "Marine Fishes" by Scott Michael, they require a 75gal as a minimum. I have one in my 72 and it is doing great. Very nice fish.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

My Oh-so-humble opinion, based soley on how mine is doing in QT and considering yours will spend at least a month (maybe 2 if you have to treat) in QT anyway... I say he'd be fine. Just keep up on your water.

I saw a LARGE PT at my LFS yesterday. That thing was the size of a dinner plate! I was amazed! I will feel awful if mine get that HUGE. 120 is never going to be enough space for all of that fish. I'll definitely need the 400 by then!

Get the biggest tank you can when you upgrade...

thats why when i buy fish i do it from my lfs and make sure he is all treated for diseases, he marks the date of when the fish are recieved and i wait at least 3 weeks if possible and check up on them daily if i can.

but i have a question also about tangs. does anyone see me having a problem keeping a hippo (blue) tang and a purple tang in my 75g? i was either gonna go with the purple or the kole yellow eyed. any suggestions?

I'm in GA.

My LFS has awesome prices on fish a lot of times. The guy who runs it doesn't really try to make a lot of money off of fish. He said it's pointless because if you charge a bunch for a fish no one will buy it anyways, and you make most of your money doing tank maintenences anyways.
