How can it not work for long? I've had my blue regal for two years, he's doing great. Its got a varied diet and is healthy.

Do you plan on upgrading your tank when he reaches a foot long?? It will be 1/4 th the length of your tank and half the width. Turning around for that poor fish will be difficult, causing stress. From then on desieses will hit and its all down hill from there.

And then spread to other livestock and kill wipe the tank out. A blue tang does not belong in a 4' tank. Yellow tangs can be argued in a 4', but a blue tang in a 4' tank is pretty bad. It's almost a fact it doesn't belong there. 6' MIN. Some say 8'. These fish never stop swimming and I have seen them at over 1'.

Well we're all entitled to our opinions. Like I said I have no problem with my blue regal tang in my 55 gallon, and neither does my fish.

So I'm on my way back from picking up my tank. It actually has TWO AC110 filters!!! Aside from being a little dusty everything is in great condition. It also came with a 250w eheim jäger heater. Is this a good quality/reliable heater?

These pieces came with the tank. Are they live rock? or base rock? or just crappy decorations?
