hey jodi do you have a purple tang? how does he get along with everyone else. la has him listed as aggressive. most the fish on my list for the rumored 125 are semi and one or two maybe 4 are peaceful
Not yet. He's being added next. Found that guy on Craigslist selling his. It's 4-5 inches and he's selling it for 80$ (a really good deal). From what I have read they are very aggressive. But one way to drop aggressiveness when adding a new tang is to change your rockwork. If their old stomping ground is no longer there- they have nothing to claim dominance per and both fish will be technically in a new environment.

Brent, do you feed him daily? Every other? What do you feed your tusk? And how often? If/when we do the 125 idea for sure the tusk.

No triggers are on the list. Oddly only 1 tang if that


Jodi

I'm sure this is down the line if at all so maybe by then you will have your purple tang If u don't mind keeping us updated on how he acts with your tank

Oh and the two bags of pods+ from reefcleaners has done a wonderful job of seeding the tank. I can see some on the glass. Some days more than others. I also now have a hermit in a snail shell. He spent the better part of a week eating the snail.

I have a 125g with cichlids and it's hard to choose somedays which is best. lol I don't know what I'd do if we had to rehome our FW babies. lol In fact, our cichlids are outgrowing the 125g so it's been agreed that we are upgrading them to a 180 or a 220g. Nice, but I almost kinda wish i could be counting on that size tank for a reef. But theres something to be said for watching the cichlids, they are some awesome fish.....

I love cichlids. There so aggressive but when they swim there so peaceful and kind of majestic looking.

They really are. I like how they use the whole tank. They are pretty and always active. It is a hard choice.

Mine are like little puppy dogs. They see my B/F and instantly swarm the tank looking for food. lol everytime he gets near the tank in fact. Poor hungry fishies...some are really really big, maybe 6 or 7 inches and we grew them from baby size, less than an inch in some cases. Can't tell ypu how many times I wish I had that tank as my reef...LOL But I can't diss the cichlids, they were my first fish in years and started me on my MTS adventure.....

I may have mine crowded but I wouldn't call mine aggressive. Grumpy sometimes, but they usually finish "fighting" just as fast as they got [Moderator edit] off. Love the color flashing. About to talk myself back out of changing the tank.

Ha. Mine swarm too. Sweety pies tank does the same thing! All I was doing was putting a movie in and they think it's feeding time.

Mine aren't really aggressive either, a little high strung sometimes but overall very sociable. I have some that chase each other but again like you said, they usually only do it for a short time and then go back to the normal behavior.

How long have you had the cichlids? Are you guys not really attached to them? Are you going to just bring them to the lfs for credit or actually rehome them ?
