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

Oh i didn't know you had a bigger one already. lol
I still think ti will be ok. The little one will eventually get bigger and they will match up. It's not an overnight thing.

No need to worry yet.

I worried day and night about my baby clowns when i first got them. I still worry too much, I'm worried the coral they are hosting will eat them. LOL See, worrying without reason again...

My personal opinion is no, stay away from the nems. I had one a few months ago and really didn't like it. It can move, if it's large it takes up to much tank space and it requires high lighting and pristine established water.

Get some corals, they might host that too. Even if you got a nem, theres no guarantee they would host it anyways.

Frogspawn and hammers are great beginner ones and clowns sometimes host them. Just corals though Zooa's are cheap and pretty and really easy. But clowns dont host them :-(

Lol let us know what you decide on.
