what else

ok guys i have a 75 gallon tank that has had a yellow tail damsel, clarky clown, and yellow tang in it for about 2 months or more. I want to add one more fish what should i get. I want to get another tang

I was thinking of a blue hippo tang.

I heard that they get a ick very quick on the transport to my house. i have a qt tank so if he were to get ick he is going right into that anyways. how are they once they are in your tank are they hardy fish or not a good buy?

I was thinking also of a purple tang or a naso tang. I really dont want a yellow eyed kole tang i think they are dull looking. (Just my opinion)

SO what is it
Blue hippo
Purple tang (this one is a little pricey)
Blonde naso tang

BTW Blonde Naso tang needs a minimum of a 125 gallon tank. Purple tang needs at least 100 + gallons. Hippo needs 70+ gallons.

If you can't deal with a kole, I'd stand pat with the tangs. You have enuf in a smaller tank IMO. The hippo, since I hear they're sensitive to ick sometimes, would surely have a problem in a small tank and another tang in it.

Kole or other smaller (bimini maybe) are your only options IMO. DEFINITELY not a naso. They need room. 6 ft tanks. Purple neither.

Think smaller, interesting additions IMO. Blennies. Gobies.

I love my yellow-eyed kole tang as well. As mentioned, the naso, hippo and purple tangs are really not great options. Be carefull adding another clown to your exsiting one. How about a small school of blue/green reef chromis, a royal gramma, a sixline wrasse or one of the dwarf angels (if you do not have a reef).
