The gentlemen came by last night and picked up the hippo tang. Naturally the brat didn't want to come out so I ended up dis-mantling half of my tank. I told him that the fish was 7 inches long.....I don't think he believed me because when he saw the fish, his eyes bugged out and promptly blurted out "OMG that thing is HUGH!" hehehe...
We put him in a 5 gallon bucket to transport and let me tell you that there wasn't much room for him to turn around. He promised to send a picture when he gets settled in.
I realized that the fish would be much happier and healthier in a larger tank (it was still hard). He was the first fish I got and he's been so healthy over the last 3+ years. I don't think I'll be replacing him with another fish. I'd like to keep my bio-load on the lighter side if possible. I still have the 2 clownfish and my yellow tang.....and my evil, hateful 6 line wrasse.
Again, thanks folks.
