The clowns seem to be adjusting well and the blenny is right at home. can't wait to get my new friends tomorrow, its been a few weeks since I got any new fish.

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

Love the new clowns!! I was just looking at the misbar clowns in a book today, I'm going to get a small clown for my nano since the dwarf angel didn't work out so well.

i saw picasso ones and snowflakes today too. But at $200 a set i had to pass. I'm thinking of starting a nano and put in a set of cool ones. The one misbar has like no bars and the other one has his bar on one side cut in half.

LOL Anything to be different. You should get a cool clown, they are soo much fun. What happened with your angel? I was looking at them but I'm not sure they are reef safe

Yah they have a pair of small snowflakes at my LFS now for 125 each...but i don't want to overstock my tank and only wanted to get one clown. I couldn't bring myself to separate the two haha. They are getting more in soon, a variety of kinds so i'll have to go look.

I had a flameback angel, beautiful fish and he was doing well in the nano. He left my corals alone...until i tried to make frags of the birdsnest. He would pick at the small pieces and kill them. Then i had to move a plate coral from my seahorse tank to the nano and he was all over that. I then moved the angel to the seahorse tank since it has only mushroom and zoas. He was doing good in there for about 2 weeks, then suddenly he got aggressive and started picking at the horses so he had to go back .

Aww thats too bad. The clown should be a good replacement plus if you get one of the premium ones even better. i also saw totally unmarked clowns today, $80 for the set. i really really should have gotten those.

My boyfirend mentioned he could always buy me them for a birthday or something so I'm hopeful. I thought i would hate the clowns but they turned into my second favorite fish.

Yah i saw those ones in the book too! They looked real nice, I can always order one too from my LFS if i need, he can usually get me anything.

First fav being the tangs? haha I saw a sailfin tang at the store today too that was about the size of a loony! soo cute but he would be for the big tank and being that small our yellow tang might pick on him...plus they are from the same family. We are definitely looking for a second tang for the large tank though.

Yep I am the tang lover. lol Do you know of any tangs that would be happy in a four foot tank? I'm searching and searching. I do intend to upgrade this tank by years end but I'd like it now. hehe

haha yup we are crossing threads..and no i don't sorry. I do think a small tang would be fine for the time being in your tank though. I've seen very very small ones at my LFS so they can be found haha look into getting an eibli tang...i had one that was just over an inch and a powerhead malfunction killed him (which i feel absolutely awful about). He had so much personality though and was the cutest little guy ever. I'm going to look into getting another. They aren't too common though i think...i cant find many pics or info of them online.
