I agree. Yellow is much hardier and can do a smaller tank IME. You don't like the Yellow Eyed Kole or the tomini tangs?

Also,it might help to know, I am color blind so that's probably why I like the bright solid color fish (or ones that area few solid colors).

heres a question, if i plan to get a bigger tank down the road, can i get a hippo tang? I mean, if she is small then she is ok in a 90 right? I guess i want to know why there is a problem, not just "nope, don't do it"
