Woke up to the purple tang with full of mucus hanging off of his body, ghasping for air at top of tank. Looks like the ich got to him, rather than let him suffer till death I just took him out and killed him! I didnt want the poor guy to suffer any longer!

That is horrible, sorry to hear about this. It sucks, but it happens to everyone. Let that tank go fallow and pick it up again in a few months!

Yea I'll keep filling the tank with coral, because it looks nice. As for the fish, as much as I like the bigger fish like purple tangs, power blue's etc I think i'll stay with the small small reef fish.

I honestly think a 75g tank isnt big enough to house a tang, I felt bad for the guy once I put him in though he was a gorgeous looking fish.

Look into the Yellow Eye Kole Tang. They are the best tang for a 75 gallon, and the only tang that the tang police won't get on to you for having in a 4 foot tank! :P

I kind of agree though with the tang police, I'm just selfish I guess and wanted tangs in my tank. Now I feel bad because the fish I had in the tank were great looking fish.

Not until I get my larger tank will I add another tang.

I'm looking into either a 60x32x24 or 72x30x24 tank for my new house, but that's only this nov

You can still have tangs in your tank without it being "mean" or "cruel" to the fish. The 75 gallon tank is a suitable home for the Kole tang. Great personality too... I love mine!

I like the yellow eye cole tang, it being a smaller tang I know it would be okay suited in a 75g but I still beleive a 4 foot tank is a little short for these medium sized fish.

i'm going to let the tank sit for the summer without any fish, let the ich die off and just add coral for the next few months
