Although most lfs will sell anyone a fish, the Blue Tang I woudn't recommend to anyone with a new tank. Very sensitive tang, and very prone to ick. Just take your time and things will work out.

Thanks for the information


I purchase purified water and use marine mix as my salt. I use an instant ocean hydrometeor and keep my salinity at around 1.021. I wasn't but am now currently heating my water to 80 degrees. SInce I have been performing water changes weekly, I have not had to top off the tank. I do not know what SG or SW mean? Then I can answer those tanks for the help

SG is specific gravity (that is measured, albeit somewhat inacurately, by your hydrometer). 1.021 is on the low side and most keep their SG closer to 1.023-1.025. As long as you're watching your SG in your main you should be ok. SW is an acronym for Salt Water (if you hover over the red links within a post you'll see the hint text for the acronym).
