And I assume these shrimps are reef safe and so forth? What do they eat?

Yep, reef safe. They will pretty much eat anything. Mine eat brine shrimp!

So if you have a newer less established tank they will be ok without feeding them or what?

This is the only forum where a 90g is not good enough for 1 SMALL tang......but yet he wants to get "the shrimp that cleans nemo" "so I guess I have to know the name" and you guys tell him yeah get him :-/
I guess there's no "SHRIMP POLICE"

Moving a fish is more stressful to move after a year or two...forget it ..........w/e
Just study up on these fish books Internet and sometimes forums will help. Good luck buddy....

Once your tank gets established check out the Mandarin...awesome fish...but like I said make sure your tank is established or u will starve the fish.

Yep, it has to be established with live rock. The Mandarin also needs TONS of Copepods, so you will need to have a population reproducing over a few months to have a good culture. And I agree, the Mandarin is a very cool fish! I hope to get one someday!

you can most def house a small tang in a 90, people do it all the time, he was questioning if a B.H.T could be housed in his 90, and yeah technically speaking it could, but only if you want it dying a pre-mature death and very possibly infecting other fish due to its stress-induced sickness... theres no reason a kole tang or yellow tang couldnt be housed in a 90. And theres really no shrimp police because other than decent parameters and no copper, they have next to no requirements, unlike tangs.. which IMO have moderate requirements..
