My girlfriend wants a "dory" in my current aquarium build (45 gallons) I'm trying to teach her about how tangs need large tanks. I have a feeling in gonna come home one day and there's gonna be a tang swimming around my tank lol
The blue hippo tang was one of the first fish.
I came home from work and my daughter and her mom went out fish shopping and that's what they came home with .
It isn't in my tank anymore .
Another mistake was buying a copper banded butterflyfish .
It wouldn't eat and it died .
