Thanks, I'll try to keep the yellow tang in QT for a week and rearrange the LR
and corals a bit to make it feel different.
The tank is about 125 gallons. The idols are about full grown but the tang is still young, about 3" long.
I picked up the idols directly from the supplier so I got them for $27 each. I discovered this place a bit late but it turned out he supplies most the LFS
in town and he's so much cheaper than the LFS
I researched the moorish idol for months and finally decided to give it a try. It's seems hit or miss with them. I was very encouraged by the success Newyorksteelo, had with his, so I'll give it a try. I've read what liveaquaria says before but it seems these two came together so perhaps they'll be happy in my tank.
The one fish I have that they don't like is the very persistent cleaner wrasse who won't leave them be. He wants to clean them and they don't want him touching them. But that cleaner wrasse is stubborn! He insists on cleaning them.
So far things are ok with the idols, they found a nice cave, seem to be swimming around investigating their new tank and get along with the gobies, blenny, Chromis and clowns. They're not picking on the clams or corals. They're still shy about eating in the front of the tank, it seems they pick at the food that floats around the back of the tank.
Worst case they don't settle in and I'll put them in the company tank we're building in the lobby. It will be massive.
