I just managed to catch the blue tang. he is now in the 125g hanging out behind the rocks. The yellow hasn't spotted him just yet. lemme tell ya, catching that blue was a PITA. LOL I was swearing up and down like crazy. hehe...but it's done so now to see what happens.

I;m gonna try to be optimistic about this. I;m usually not but this time I'll try not to over worry or get too pessimistic.

Wish me luck, I'll be sure to post more stuff here, it's what i live for . ROFL

I had to take everything out and all the hang on stuff off to get at him. Plus the support bar in the middle on top just meant I had to keep going from isde to side. LOL

I shute off the lights early tonight and the bleu is sleeping behind some rocks where the yellow used to sleep and the yellow is on the complete opposite side. So so far, so good.

On day two of the blue tang being in the 125g and so far you don't see him very much. The yellow hasnt really bothered him yet, could he still be getting used to the tank? he is pretty much hiding behind the rocks and away from the other fish. Although sometimes it seems he is trying to make friends with the yellow tang as he will swim up to him and swim around him for a bit, then he runs away...lol

he is eating though so thats a good thing. I still havent found the rock he sleeps under though, way too much rock to find him at night.

LOL. At least it wasnt like last time I added the two tangs, the yellow was all over their case from the moment they went in. Still not sure he didnt stress the caribbean blue to death, but they were seemingly mellowing out as the days went by.
