Can't find the caribbean blue that I also have my heart set on at L.A.com. So I will defintely be ordering from aquaconnection.

Surgeonfish: Tang Fish, Hippo Tangs, Yellow Tangs, other Surgeons - Aquatic Connection

Look at their tang selection and let me know what can go with the 3 I want.

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

Lol, convicts are actually schooling fish in the wild that take over reefs. The other tangs will group together to fend them off. I suppose they can't get over their differences even in the home aquarium. Oh well.

I'm not seeing much else besides the tomini on there, why not do multiple yellows? 3 would be ok in your tank and would school, introducing them together should prevent fighting.

I've heard multiple yeloows will be ok when they are juvenile but as they mature can fight? Not sure how true this is.

HAPPY NOTE!! The tang finally ate some flake food I just threw in! I'm so glad you have no idea!

So what do you guys think, multiple yellows or go with a tomini?

In the 120, I would probably prefer the tomini for some variety.

Yep that's what I was thinking. It'd be cool to have 4 tangs!!! I can't wait til they are swimming around lol.

Now I just have to figure out what else I can put in. I'm pretty sure I'll add the sandsifting goby, as long as he will get along with my pink spotted watchman.

I wanted a schooling fish which is why i considered the anthias', like 3 females to one male. I don't want jumping fish like dartfish either so is there anything else? the Lo is out cause it has venomous tines, sooo not gonna worry about that! I wanted a purple tilefish but I hear they are hard to feed. That would be an awesome color to have in the tank with the yellow and blues.

So fire away, gimme your suggestions

Must be reef safe though! hehe

Yea convicts go in giant shoals. When I snorkeled in HI there were around 100 of them per school, most common fish I saw on the reef.

Surrounded by Tangs, my dream day!!! LOL

Well, at least I'll have 4. woot woot! I will probably order late next week or maybe the Monday after, just to make sure everything is still going well in the tank after i move the 55g over into it.

i don't agree with the species specific fighting. i have seen tanks with schools of yellow tangs that didn't fight at all. in the wild convict tangs school in the hundreds, naturally. it's all up to the individual fish.
btw, the yellow mimic tang was the one that ate my watermelon chalice. ya never know.

I have not heard of the group fighting, but have heard yellows will fight in pairs. Do you think there is any truth there X?
