Overcrowded, but looking healthy? Hmm...

That tank looks freshly put together...

What do you guys think?

My words of warning where not towards the tang being hard to keep but rather can be difficult to acclimate and often arrive sickly...

Once/if the tang settles in, it can indeed be a very hardy fish. I am glad that you where able to aquire healthy fish MR294 but considering their rarity, it should be left alone IMO.

Cheers
Steve

Thanks for all your replies esp to Steve.
I'll reconsider about the black tang issue. For the benefit of the other guys, my tank is definitely about 5 months old and most of them were there since day 1. Anyway, I'm working on reducing the stock.
Thanks for all your concern.
