Gramma looks great in there, and I have to admit the tang looks good too. BUT we know the deal with him sadly. You did a good thing taking in those fish and rehoming them. Its admirable and was the right thing to do.

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

Yes, I got two options.

rehome them. I did get few call for tang. They will come on the weekend. Let's see how it goes.

How big of a tank do I need to keep what I have??? I can try looking at craigslist if I get lucky.

Another concern I have is ammonia.

Wouldn't it cause the tank to cycle again because I have added all this at once?

I think the yellow tang requires about 125gallons.

Yeah, a 125 is the smallest 6 foot tank I think thats a normal size. :-( Isn't he wonderful to watch? I hope you get lucky and ambitious to get a bigger tank if you can swing it. That would be the perfect solution in a perfect world.

Youre keeping the chromis right? cause i think you can swing them in there. The tang has a large bioload so I'd monitor the tank for a few days and make sure you don't have a spike.

Back on the cleaner wrasse, they have some very funky behaviour and are often MIA. Mine would wedge himself inbetween rock crevices just before lights out. In the morning before lights on, he would have mysteriously vanished! Then as the lights turn on, he appears!

They also wrap themselves in a mucus "cocoon" for protection from the rocks they wedge themselves in. Some days I would see what could only be described as a "slime ball" floating around the tank.
Very Interesting!

Carey, Ur right! yellow tang is awesome.
Someone came today for the tang almost sold him too. When I asked him his tank size he said 40gallons. So I refused.

But he bought my anemone ($10) for his tomato Clown. I was worried everyday for it. It's a relief.

Yes u have decided to keep chromis and royal gramma.
Going to sell yellow tang and cleaner wrasse.
Don't think I can Handle 125g. Up to 50-75g max.

I did get my water tested today:
Ammonia, nitrite -0
Nitrate>5.
Ph-8.2
salinity 1.024. Temp 80f.
Calcium-450ppm

I will do 10%water change every 3 days just to be safe.
