I'm breaking down a 300 gallon reef tank. I already sold the black tang (7"), auusie blue hippo, and one of the angels, and a few other fish. I took all the coral (there was a lot of rare or very expensive ones) to the shop to sell and because this was the only eating Achilles tang I've seen, I'm keeping him. Lol. Hopefully I'll be able to talk my husband into keeping the 300 gal as well. It's a beautiful starfire glass peninsula tank.

And I will keep him until I can't anymore!!

Surprisingly- the Achilles is out and about this morning! I fed and he ate again! No signs of stress this morning- but I have noticed he is staying clear of the doctor.

On another note- my clowns are getting mean. Lol. They were charging after the tangs this morning if anyone got to close to their welso.

If ur willing to ship some of that coral, I'd like to see what you have. My guys here are very expensive for coral, but very reasonable with fish.

I have a LT. Tang. I like the colors on him so much. He was hard to find tho. I went to several different places searching for a loooong time to find him. He wasn't expensive- just so darn hard to find. Lol
