Talking I'm back with new fish!

After the ice storm in February that wiped out all my SW tanks, I was convinced I'd put up SW fish until after I graduated college. But, my parents somehow convinced me that I couldn't live without them; they were right! I've spent the last two months preparing my tanks, and now, I'm going to share them with you!

I purchased fish online for the first time from Saltwaterfish.com, and I am convinced that I won't be shopping anywhere else. I just got them yesterday, and this is the first time I've turned the lights on and fed them. Everyone appears to be in good condition--a little skinny, but nothing I can't fix--except the PBT who has a white face, but I'm not sure if it's from stress or malnutrition. Anyway, they're all eating heartily, and I hope they stay with us for a long, long time. Here's some pics, enjoy

Orangeshoulder Tang


Lieutenant Tang


Powder Blue Tang:


Naso Tang:


The PBT is the largest and is the dominant fish in the tank. There's some occasional sparring, but nothing bad. They all swim together almost like in a shoal, and happily graze the rocks for algae all day.

Thanks, thincat. The tangs are in a 220. They're the only fish in there. I'll be sure to pass the kind words on to the fish haha.

They look great, especially once you fatten them up a bit! And in a 220, hard to ask for a better life

Well my parents were so happy with the fish, that they're wanting to upgrade to a 300 gallon tank. All we need to do is find one. ATM I'm feeding them Emerald Entree, Spirulina Brine Shrimp, and Mysid Shrimp 3 times a day. I make sure that as long as the lights are on, there's a strip of nori on the clip. I hope I can fatten them up. The PBT is still a little slow on eating, but he's taken some foods, he's just not too interested right now. I guess he's still a little shaken up from the trip.

Great looking fish. Maybe you should invest in a portable generator just in case.

maybe they will want to try something like this instead of a 300 gal tank.
