Two Spot Bristletooth Tang

I have searched around and cannot find too much information on a Two Spot Bristletooth Tang. Does anyone have one or previously had one? Are they ich magnets or anything special I should know before purchasing one?

Probably every tang is an ick magnet but if you properly QT, acclimate and properly care for them the chances are smaller that they will get ick.

Great fish. Like Mike said, you have a good chance for ich with any tang. I qt all new fish I get and this one didn't need any treatments. I wouldn't put one into a display without qt first.

Yeah. I QT all of my fish for roughly 2-3 weeks except for Tangs and I QT them for 4-6 weeks to be on the safe side. Wow cccapt, he looks awesome! I can't wait until I get mine.

I know Blue Heppatus Tangs are more prone to ich than the typical Tang so I wanted some advice from people who had owned the Bristletooth.

Thanks for the feedback, it's always nice to be able to run ideas past others more experienced..
