Kole... Duh... Lol...

Expected so from you. That is like asking me "Do you think Blue Green Chromis are good for SW Reef Tanks?" a bit biased.

Yes, but they were all added at the same time. My yellow tang was aggressive towards my kole tang, because I put it in first, then after a few weeks added the kole, but now they're fine. All tangs should be added at the same time, except maybe the blue tang, since they're push overs lol

I LOVE Bluegreen chromis. im adding some blue reef chromis soon to see if they fight/are as awesome the bluegreens. hope 3 bluegreens + 3 blue reefs should be a good combo. what if all of them start schooling together...

I know. But I am airing on the side of the kole, as it is more popular which equals more available which in turn equals that hopefully my LFS will have it. I always call beforehand though. wouldnt want to drive 35 miles to hear a "sorry, we dont have any kole tangs today."

I actually added my yellow first and then the blue a few months later. SO far so good.

My first go around I also didnt put them in at the same time, and it was kole tang, next week yellow tang, the next week blue caribban tang and anthias and then everything died. :-(

The first time with all the tangs they fought a little bit but after about 2-3 days they were fine with each other, that is until the blue infected theothers with whatever he had.

I still have another 2 weeks til I put my tomini in so hopefully my luck holds out as far as them being aggressive.

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