Best of luck on getting those two fish! The Tang has been out of stock for a while now, hopefully that means that he will be back soon. I know LA keeps them for a little while before they go on the website which I love. Hopefully they have a few getting close to the end of their QT period!

It's also my birthday present. lol Hoping the b/f doesnt forget that he promised to buy me that tang. I don't think I will let him forget though.

LOL, I was wondering what you got for your birthday. That Tang is so awesome! "Too many Tangs, too little gallons, lol." That is how I look at it for myself, .

This should be my last tang. Well, unless I upgrade the 125g soon. LOL

For me anyway, I am perfectly happy with just the 3 tangs. I wouldn't be against another one but I dont' feel the need, at least right now.

Yeah, I hav a list of my favorites, and then some I really like, but not a must-have. Tangs are probably my favorite fish though.

So far the fish are all getting along and eating really well, especially the butterfly. lol I've been testing daily and have had no ammonia spikes or any nitrites so I think the tank is pretty stable.

I wanted another butterfly and a couple small wrasses BUT I might have to change some stocking. What do you guys think of me moving my B&W clowns, my engineer goby and the barnacle blenny to this tank? I'm getting alot of aggression from the barnacle blenny so I need to separate him from the 20g tank. I figure the 90g is semi aggressive kinda so he should fit right in. The only thing I'm worried about is the barnacle is only about 2 inches long and won't be getting any bigger. lol

I wasn't going to put clowns in the 90g at all and was planning on moving the clowns to the new 60g tank but I think they will be too big in that tank as the 60g is gonna be all micro fish. So do I move the clowns in?
And the engineer goby I knew I would have to move so he should be fine I think, he's getting too big for the 20g and he will be kinda big in the 60g too.

Please help me decide if I should go ahead and move them or if you have any other suggestions. Always looking for new ideas and other solutions so fire away!

Thanks guys!

Hehe, you know her very well! Carey has one of those in her 125g reef, but the Tang is very shy so we don't get to see her much, lol. I love that Tang, it is very pretty, awesome suggestion!
