Yep, a hawaii hawk and a sifter goby whose name eludes me right now. lol He is a sifter though and the hawk I had never seen one like it before.
Got all the fish acclimating now, so far the yellow and naso are behaving together in the bucket, now to see if the other tangs accept them. This will be my last foray into naso's if this one doesnt make it. Another 30 min or so and the fish will all go into their new homes! woot!

Looks like an orange spot diamond goby.

He's completely white. lol Seems like all the fish are doing ok. The yellow got harassed a bit by the tomini, but the lights are off so I am hoping for the best.

I havent qt'd since i dont know when. The 40b is a new tank with nothing in it so thats pretty much an easy call. And the tangs, well, I figure its less stressful to just put them in rather than put them thru a qt period and then have to move them again. I've been relatively lucky as far as qt'ing goes. It also helps that i only buy fish after a thorough inspection and from reliable sources. I must have watched these two tangs for over an hour today before committing to buy em. lol
It looks like the tomini has finally left the yellow alone. Now to see what the blue tang does when the lights go on in the morning. I had the lights out since I acclimated them to avoid any issues. The yellow tang looked so much bigger in the store, lol, but he is half the size of the naso and only a small fraction of the size of tomini and pootie tang.
They are both kinda thin, so I hope to fatten them up. They also both ate like pigs after they went into the tank. All good signs.

I just remembered the name of the goby, its a ladder slider. Never heard of it but will do a little research on him.

A little update:
The yellow banana wrasse is doing really well in the 90g, very active and eats well.
The hawaiian hawk also is doing ok, eats very very well too. Havent seen the little goby yet today, but he is very tiny and white so he blends in really well with the sand. lol
AND the 180g!
The yellow tang and naso are looking to be doing good. The tomini has completely left the yellow tang alone and pootie tang is oblivious to their presence so all is well as far as agression. woot! I put out several strips of seaweed and the yellow was brave enough to get in the mix with the larger tangs and got some. The naso was kinda bum rushed, all the fish go crazy for the seaweed and I guess he couldnt get a spot in to grab some. lol
I made some videos of the 90g and 180g and am uploading them now so I will post them in a little while.
I'm still a little concerned about the yellow tang, he is so small compared to everyone else in the tank and both tangs are very thin which seems pretty common in pet store fish, I'll just keep feeding them til they fatten up. LOL
Thanks everyone for following! I really appreciate it.
