I tried to get a good shot of them together but with poor results. lol But I;ve attached some of the pics that came out the best out of probably 40 or so attempts.

And we have named our tangs. The yellow is twitcy since shes always so perky and twitchy and the blue is now known as "Pootie".

Please tell me someone gets the "Pootie" Tang reference LOL. It's a reach and most people probably have never seen the movie....oops big hint there.

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

QT is now currently empty. I only wanted to add one fish or set of fishes at a time. My next purchase may be 3-4 blue reef chromis. Or a midas blenny. OR a Kole tang even though I said no more tangs. LOL

Kinda depends on what i see and where. The chromis I will have to get online most likely. My fave LFS said he will be getting some in some time son as he has a customer that wants 30!!!! for his 220 reef tank. omg. Can you imagine having 30 of the same fish in one tank, even a 220? Some people.....I just don't get it sometimes....lol

I think I'm gonna head out and do some shopping. I need glass covers for the new 55g i just bought and I may just have to check out the 2 lfs that are near the petsmart I'm gonna go to.

Trying to get this new 55g up and sellable this week. I could use the money. lol So I officially have 4 tanks for sale now. hehe.....

Nice looking fish.Carey,don't you think you might have to strong a flow,if that is a hammer in the left corner of the first picture?If it is it will do better in a lot less flow.It looks like the trees in my backyard when Irene passed through Saturday.LOL
Seriously, to strong a flow can be stressful on your corals and fish.My hammer doesn't look as strung out.

I believe it is a frogspawn. Also I believe that Branching hammer is a bit different from your version and they also spread out more.

You might be seeing part of my torch coral, I dont have a frogspawn in that tank. I'm also running both my powerheads today, I rotate the one on and off from time to time. The torch flows ALOT looks just like a nem.
