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

Sorry for the bad news. But your tank is way to small to fit all those tangs. I would say mabey two tangs, depending on how big they get. Max.

Nice tank. I just set up my 90 as well. Most of those tangs get really big. I tried the Achilles 8 years ago and they are tough to keep. BUT if you do get one, show me some pictures!

Yeah. Lol. I'm not sure which tangs yet. the guy at the store said it was best to do two or three of different types (3 in total not of each). But I am leaning towards the Achilles

Lol. Thanks! Will post as I add more equipment and livestock. Quick update: after careful consideration, I have decided to name my hawiian feathduster after my husband. No matter how I place it- it does what it wants. For example, I have tried to place it anywhere in plain sight. But NOOOOOOOO. It has to make it's way back to the side and back of the tank with it's crown facing the back panel of the tank, sweetly tucked Into a rock. All I can see is its lovely tube butt. Lmao. Is this normal? I've read that they will go where they want to. Is there anyway to make him "choose" a spot that doesnt involve hiding???

Corals usually go where they're comfortable. This can be flow, lighting or any other variable. I doubt you have a anti-social feather duster, it's probably just looking around try changing your powerhead setting or so, maybe it'll stay where you want it to

Ok. So my next questions...lol... What exactly should I stock up in my refugium. All I really have in there right now is 3 inches of sand and LR rubble. The guy at my mom and pop store said just some micro algae- and I trust him, but I want a secon opinion just in case. What types of micro algae, also, what about a mangrove (and when do those seeds drop from the trees? I live ten minutes from the Everglades so why pay?? Lmao). I do have a light fixture for my refugium so I could add snails, etc. And I run it at opposite times as my DT so to help with a balanced ph level (or so I have been told). What is best?
