Aww sorry about your fish. that sucks. i had a blue johanni that got sucked up and I still feel bad about it. My only fatality to date.

I've never heard of an eibli tang. Sounds like a cool fish. i want personality in my fish, my blenny cracks me up and i can stare at my clowns all day. Maybe I'm just easily amused.

I'm gonna look into this yellow eyed kole tang some more. Maybe it will be ok. With my luck I'll get the Kole and then i wont be able to house a yellow tang when i upgrade. Gotta check compatibility.

The kole tang should be fine with a yellow tang in a larger tank. I'm actually looking into getting one for the large tank too. The only ones not compatible with the yellow tang are the ones in the Zebrasoma family...just type it into the search on liveaquaria..all those tangs are in the same family and wont get along too well.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Mimic Eibli Tang

all tangs can be aggressive towards other tangs. Getting ones with different colors and body shapes will help with this and also introducing them at the same time. You might need to temporarily take the kole out and rearrange the rock and then put them both back at the same time.

The eibli tang says it can be extremely aggressive to other tangs unless in a very large tank...that guy might be ruled out for you haha

The yellow tangs can be mean too....this really all depends on how your fish's personality is haha my LFS guy says the yellow tang will either be a very nice fish or a very mean fish..im glad mine is a sweety haha...well so far he hasn't bothered anything

well I guess i have a few weeks to decide since I just added fish today. That mimic it says gets up to 10"! Wow. Cool looking fish though.
The other tang I was looking at is the yellow lemonpeel. It says a four foot tank is ok. But it also says its very aggressive.

I'm leaning on getting a baby yellow one. I already have the filtration system for a 125g all I need is a tank and stand. Little more research on growing speed to be sure.

thanks so much for your help tonight Kelsey. its much appreciated.
