Where do your nitrates sit?

The only thing I can really say is that the tank you have is too small for those particular tangs. All tangs have trouble with it but blue tangs in particular are ich magnets. They really require a 180g tank or larger.

Moors Idols shouldn't be kept. They almost always die. There is however a butterfly fish that looks a lot like them. I would go with that instead.

Ive seen those around but they dont look as amazing as the idols in my opinion. Why are they so hard to keep?
