Definitely waaay too small for a naso tang. Pls consider not putting another in there. They need a 6' tank, even more than other tangs IMO.

Didn't grab a naso. Just saved the credit for something else in the future. But is it really too small for the fox? From what the LFS and what I read online, the size should be okay. But then again the LFS also told me that the naso would be okay too.

Be very hesitant to listen to that lfs. Anyone telling you a naso tang can go in a corner tank like you have is either very unknowledgeable or out to take your money. Look the fish up on your own before buying. This link is helpful somtimes. Saltwater Fish: Marine Aquarium Fish for Saltwater Aquariums

It says the foxface needs at least 70g, but I'm thinking the corner tank you have is even less swimming room and may cause stress. Good luck.

Make sure she is not swimming into the glass. When they are too large for a tank they tend to swim into the sides. She should be fine, but as she grows i would suggest getting a larger tank for a forever home. Like a mentioned before it will take several years for her to reach full size since they tend to be slow grow slowly.

Thanks!
This almost exactly my stock. Along with the one spot. He freaks me out every morning when I turn on the lights. All washed out with weird spots.
