My betta grouper hid for prob 3 weeks. It was a nightmare trying to coax him out. Now he just hovers. As for the tusk, my juvenile tusk made it over a week in the tank with 2 triggers (had no choice due to tank failure) so id say yours is a hardy lil guy

I caught the tusk out today for a few minutes when I fed and then he just went into the rocks and gone again.lol I really hope he gets used to the tank he is such a cool little fish.

I passed on the ev1000 skimmer, it would have been awesome to have but it would have had to sit outside the tank and the pump was external as well so it would have been more trouble than it was worth probably.

So, I have this money burning a hole in my pocket, lol, I was thinking of picking up one of those used sumps I was looking at awhile ago I'm also thinking that I want to do a slow move to the new tank so this way I can have both running at once and move things over slowly. This is also the time to decide if I want to add another tang or two since they will all be moving it should lessen the aggression.

So what tang(s) should I consider? The ones I have now are pretty aggressive so I don't need a mellow one but I don't want a monster either. I like the desjardini's, unicorns and of course the ever elusive white tailed tang ( which I will never find I think). I'm also wondering what else I should add. I definitely want some more blue reef chromis, I was thinking maybe 6-8 of them since the tank will be so large. I'm kinda thinking of a rabbit fish of some type as well. What says you? lol Any and all thoughts will considered as I am very open to suggestions and experiences you guys may have had with a particular fish.

I am very lightly stocked now with a yellow tang, blue tang, tomini tang, melanrus wrasse, pink spotted goby and a purple dottyback. So there will be plenty of room in this new tank. Just suggest do-able fish though, things like a sweetlips or groupers won't work as they will get too large even for this tank.

Thanks everyone, hoping to hear some good thoughts and suggestions.

I emailed them almost 3 years ago for that fish. LOL Still nothing. I still add my email every few months too, just in case.

Well that is just too bad... was hoping I stumbled upon a breakthrough! Either way, amazing looking fish. You don't have any of the sailfin body type tangs...why not try for a purple? Everyone wants a purple!

If I had the money for a purple I would probably get a chevron instead lol. I forgot to mention, a "cheaper" tang or other fish. Nothing too much over $100, preferably less than that.

Don't get carried away. Even a 250 fills up fast when it's tangs you're adding.
