New Fish

Hey All,

My 65 US gallon FOWLR tank is finally stable and I'm thinking about adding either: a/two of the following:

purple tang, yellow tang, or flame angel.

My tank is 125cms long 45cms tall 45cms wide and currently has:

1x fire shrimp(?)
1x algae blenny (3inches)
1x blue tang (3inches had him for 3 months now, no growth)
1x neon blue goby (2inches)
1x yellow tail damsel (2inches)
1x ? damsel (1 1/2 inches
1x percula clown fish (1 1/2 inches)
2x black saddle back clown fish (4 inches total)

What does this forum recommend as far as personality, easy to take care of, beauty, tank compatability?

Why and when was it unstable?

No more tangs. That's a lotta fish already in my opinion.

What are you nitrate readings by the way?

Agree with austinsdad... no more tangs. Plus if I had what you listed already, I'd consider myself done. (Actually, I'd consider myself overstocked.)

I agree. It looks like you are at your limit or over.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

Agreed, as it is that blue tang will get to large for your tank, i think it is recommended that they be in a 125g tank or atleast a 6ft tank.
