Hey Redsea, JMO, but I don't think your Scopas would like it very much if you put a Purple in with him. They are both from the same family Zebrasoma, and the Purple is known to be just as aggressive, if not more than a Yellow. Even if the Purple was smaller, I think it would lead to trouble. Just my .02.

I think since you already have the scopas the purple might be a gamble. :-( If you were putting them in at the same time it might be different but adding tangs to an already established tang tank could lead to trouble, specially since they have the same body type.

Plenty of tangs to choose from though, dont give up yet! lol

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

Thanks all of you!

I think I will shy away from all Zebrasoma Tangs then. I would rather be safe the sorry, the last thing I want is for me fish to be unfriendly with one another.

Any suggestions for my last Tang?

Thanks everyone!!

Well- my tank is against all odds- but it's a gamble adding any tang to a tank that has another tang already in it. My yellow and Sailfin went in first. Then the purple. Then the doctor. Then the lieutenant. Then the Achilles. Am I missing anyone? Lol. I is watch my tank for days after every introduction and would only acclimate after lights out. Believe it or not the doctor tang keeps everyone in line now. He's the boss. My yellow is no longer the king. Like I said- its a gamble either way. I got lucky. You have a qt tank right? Could always take the other tang out for a few weeks to introduce both tangs at the same time.

I do have a QT. Then I could just add both at the same time when I am ready. However, that would mean I wouldn't be able to QT the Purple unless I setup an additional QT. I would actually probably be okay with that since it would be coming from LA, and I trust them.

Ahh decisions, decisions.

Thanks everyone for posting your thoughts, they are greatly appreciated!

Do you guys think I should quarantine fish from LiveAquaria.com? I don't think I will be quarantining fish from the diver's den as they QT them there, but I am not sure about other fish not from the Diver's Den. I am thinking about placing an order later today, not sure yet though.


Thank you.
