I don't see any down side to waiting. If parameters stay in check, then start adding more. Better safe than sorry.

Sorry to hear about the loss. I want a Naso for my 240g, but I am going to wait. I will talk to a couple LFS out in my old stomping grounds this weekend and see what they say about their Nasos lately.

Well I'd consider you pretty close Carey! Though there is definitely something wrong going on.

After my 2-3 tries with the copperband I spoke with a good lfs guy. He ahd told me he wont even bring them in unless they are from australia I think he said. But he said that drives the price up to over $100 and not many people will spend it.

I was eying a large yellow and a orange shoulder the day before yesterday. I like the orange's body shape, but I didnt get them obviously. I'm just so particular when i get tangs. lol

I'm hoping to get up to orlando in a few days after I get paid and maybe get two from a shop out there. I have had pretty good luck with their fish so why not give them my tang business.

Clown tangs are very aggressive, not a good fit for a 180g. But thanks for the suggestion.
