He comes out at night only it seems but eats like a horse lol. I think its the tang thats giving him trouble, he only came out when the tang went under the rocks to sleep. He was out with the wrasses and no issues. He's just so tiny lol... He's about the size of the tangs tail

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

I actually just had to remove (gave to LFS) my yellow tang. It was a hard decision but he was harassing my Tusk and my dwarf golden eel. My eel hadn't eaten for 2 weeks. I also saw him tail slap my porcupine puffer (who is 3 times his size) and slap my lionfish.

Just keep an eye on it. Tangs don't take too kindly to new tank mates and they don't seem to get over it.

I have Never had a yellow tang but just watching them and the purples at the LFS i can see they are aggressive. Maybe i need one as my Tusk is VERY aggressive at feeding time. Just they are so damm expensive.

The purples are expensive. The yellows are like $30.

Maybe it will be a different story of the tang is added after the tusk. My tang was in there first and he harassed my tusk into a corner. The tusk is also twice his size.

My tusk is also aggressive at feeding time. He actually tried stealing food from my puffers mouth once.

My 4" yellow tang straight out bullied my 2" purple tang at first ( the purple wouldnt even fight back, just ran away) so i took the yellow out for 4 days... Upon reintroduction, the purple tail slapped the yellow, of course when the yellow went after the purple, the purple actually fought back... Yellows bullying days are over. They peacefully coexist now. Even eat together
