Thanks guys, I hemmed and hawed over which one to buy he had about 6. LOL

I took the biggest most blue one he had, it was in his display tank so it wasnt crowded into one of the small tanks he had the others in. Not sure if that will make a difference but I'm hopeful this tang will do well.

That's good, he is probably healthier than the others that were in the small tank.

He was definitely more blue than the others. lol He is freaking me out though now, he's in his acclimation bucket and he is on his side. I know they are known to do that but it's still unnerving. Only another half hour or so and I will move him into the tank. Can't wait to get pictures of him swimming around.

Hopefully when he goes into the big tank he will get along with my yellow tang. **fingers crossed** hehe
