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

Are there different bristletooth tangs? I see them all the time at my Lfs. But not labeled white tail.

There are several bristletooth tangs. I believe the kole yellow eye is a bristletooth.

The white tails are red colored, almost kinda like the chevron. There are many different bristle tooth tangs. Tomini is one I have already.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: White Tail Bristletooth Tang, Ctenochaetus flavicauda
There it is (if anyone wanted to see what it looked like)! I have never seen it anywhere except for LA.

Carey- have you checked to see if any of your LFS can order it for you?

I have 23 shops on the lookout for one but so far nothing. :-( One guy told me that they get ugly as adults but I still would love it. lol

I keep getting the bug to get a tusk, not sure why lol, but I know I want something to round out the 90g. The 6 or 7 fish in there need friends.

Wow, I should check around here and see if any shops can order one, and then I can ship it to you! LOL. That is if I could figure out how to ship a fish without killing it. LOL.

I think it will be fine. They're sometimes called gentle giants and aren't really mean at all. The only thing I would think about is that it could outgrow a 90....... You may need a 125.

Yup! I hear you. I want one too. They're like a smaller cheaper version of a chevron. Cool looking fish. Haven't seen one on LA in over a year. I knew I should have purchased it when I saw them go for sale.

As for the Aussie Harlequin, they're on sale on LA this week. $150 vs the $190. Think the sale on them is ending soon though.
