I'm about to upgrade my tank to around a 70-80 gallon tank. I've been researching which fish to put in- I'm so excited! I currently have two clownfish and a coral banded shrimp and a few corals.
I was thinking a yellow tang, sailfin tang, purple tang and I absolutely love Butterfly fish. However, I have read that Butterfly fish are incompatible with corals. I went to my LFS
and saw the cutest little Butterfly fish- I'm pretty sure it was a Klein's Butterfly Fish. When I asked the man about it, he simply said that it would definately eat coral- quite rudely aswell!
Just wondering if all Butterfly fish eat corals? Or if maybe some kinds are less likely to eat coral? Because I have seen pictures of peoples tanks with Butterfly and corals. Also, will it be alright with my Shrimp? My shrimp is fairly non aggressive.
And just one last thing- sorry this is very long!- I tihnk purple tangs are so beautiful, I have read that they are very expensive, but are there any other problems with them? I would introduce all the Tangs to the new tank at the same time to try and avoid aggression.
Thanks so much for your advice!
