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

Mine won't go near the clip but eats it if I chop it up and throw it in.

It took about 4 or 5 times of hanging a piece of algae before my powder blue went near it. He seems to realluly enjoy when I feed emerald entree: a nutritious omnivorous formula.

On the subject of tangs, how many can go in a 125g do you think? I wanted to add a yellow tang and blue atlantic tang to the yellow eye Kole tang I have. BUT I saw a baby scopas tang today and I so want it! LOL

I'm gonna start to move the livestock today, hopefully it goes smoothly, I know my goby and blenny are not going to be happy....I'm gonna have to empty the tank to get everyone out. Fun Fun

You should not get a scopas tang and a yellow tang, they will fight.

Yellow tang - Zebrasoma flavescens
family: Acanthuridae

Scopas tang - Zebrasoma scopas
Family: Acanthuridae

Sorry

I generally go by the scientific name, if its similar then they won't get along. Family I think doesn't matter too much since I just looked and so far every tang I look at is from the Acanthuridae family haha so disregard that!

Edit* Also if they are similar colors and body shape then they are less likely to get along.

Yea, A purple tang and yellow tang would definitely fight for example. They literally look exactly the same, just with different colors.

I think a naso would get along with a kole tang. They look quite dissimilar and a kole tang is Ctenochaetus strigosus while a naso is Naso lituratus. Too bad the tank is too small, they're really cool fish.

Would a Scopas really fight with a Kole? They don't look similar at all and belong to different genii

Scopas would fight with the yellow, not the kole.
