The black O. clown is pretty laid back most of the time. She is the larger of the two clowns that I have so she is the more aggressive of the two.
Here she is hosting a fake anemone.

Ok possible fish list in order of adding











Am i mistaken on this one? I know alot of people advice a 6 foot tank but i thought this one could go in a 75 gallon tank and the yellow down to a 55 but now live aquaria has them listed at 125 and 100 gallons



Misc not counting snails and crabs or coral









Thoughts?

Not sure on the others but ditch the blue hippo tang, they're one of the larger tangs and need a 6 ft tank.

+1 on the blue tang. Some people try to squeeze them into a 4 foot but it just doesn't work out well. When they get stressed (probably from being in a 4 foot with not enough room) they get sick really easily. Ich practically jumps from other tanks just to get to them.

You are right. At one time liveaquaria had them as 70 gallon minimum. They realized that this fish is really suseptible to ich and needs a larger tank. IMO two tangs would do good in a 75 and thats the yellow tang and a yellow eyed kole tang.

By that do you mean one or the other or both?

My LFS has a blue tang in a 75g, along with the biggest Clown I've ever seen. If it's smaller than 3", I'd be surpriced. The tang is about 5". It's been in there since my first visit in March.

Im guessing the tang is my only questin mark? The order looks right? I know the mandarin is a shy fish and should prolly go before the clown but really want a good pod population before i get it.

I think it can be done and be successful. When i first looked into it everyone here said 6 foot tank live aquaria said 75 gallon which is a 4 foot tank. And people on another forum were more mixed between the 2.

So i think it can be done in a 75 gallon but you have to be very good with your tank or you will be fighting ich. If you just buy it without knowing the tangs enviroment andits needs your asking to wipe out your tank. If you research it can be done. Lot of people do it very well. But more people i believe have tanks wipe out.

I wl have to think onit. It comes down to what i wanna do. but i do respect the opinions on these boards. Other wise i wouldnt be here. So would be foolish to just ignore the advice
