Do you still have the 29 listed in your profile? Achilles tangs are very difficult, prone to ich and need a big(ger) tank... They sure are beautiful. If you have a larger tank now then you may consider a white cheek. They're a little less fragile and IMO more beautiful.

EDIT: I see from your other thread that you've just upgraded tanks... I'd personally still steer clear of the achilles in favor of the white cheek, but I'm glad to see that it would be going into a 75. I haven't checked their space needs, but I'm sure the 75 is much better suited than the 29!

They're here side by side for comparison. I see they're both out of stock at LA though.

Even this new tank is too small for an achilles tang. Sorry.

The achilles has a recommended tank size of 100g where the white cheek has a recommended tank size of 70g, based on LAs tank size recommendations. Looks like a much better fit.
