I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Woke up this morning and couldn't find the butterfly. :-( Found him under some rocks getting feasted on. Not sure why he died, water is good and he was fine last night, eating like a pig as ususal.

This has been a hard week on the 90g. First the midas jumping blenny and now the kleins butterfly. Total bummer.....

Thanks. I hate loosing fish with no apparent cause. That butterfly was one of my favorites too.

And this is why I HATE when people buy these fish thinking they can keep them. These fish are beautiful but need to be left in the ocean. Yet no matter how many times someone looses one everyone seems to think they will be the exception.

Sucks but it happens more often then not with this fish.

Thanks. I'm still really bummed, I keep looking at the tank and it seems so empty now without the butterfly and midas. They were the most active fish in there. :-(

That tang I want is still out of stock too so no idea when I'll be adding fish again to this tank. I won't be replacing the butterfly with another but will consider ideas for filling that fish slot.

Trying not to get too depressed, so give me some ideas on another fish to add other than the Tang. It doesn't have to be reef safe so it can be most anything.

Thanks again guys, I appreciate the thoughts, I'm getting weepy just typing this out so take my mind off it and give me some fish options. You know you wanna, gets everyone involved since everyone on this site love fish.

It wasn't a copperband or a difficult butterfly. I researched extensively for the best option that had the best survival rate in home aquaria. If you read up a bit, this particular butterfly had the best chance in a home aquarium.

I appreciate the thought though, I too think there are some fish best left in the ocean, just tried to the absolute best of my abilities and failed.
