Auto filter is a bit better after the site upgrade. Not sure what was said but if it is what I think it was, the filter wil take it out. Any of the standard curse words will do the same.

well its day 4 and all he's eating is cypoleese. I can't amagine that can be enough to sustain him.

I just read the post about the naso and them being able to go days without eating but mines looking pretty rough. He;s only 2 1/2 inches and really drawn in with some darkness around his body and head.

Sucker is still swimming like crazy and the other fish don't mess with him.

I'm soaking some nori in garlic now to see if that works.

Brenden, did you say scared because they are supposed to be hard to keep?

Probably because it’s aggressive towards other Tangs (which Brenden has quite a few) and labeled as “expert only” on live aquaria’s site.

I hear they are hard to keep also. I believe they need higher water flow. What's the circulation rate in your tank?

mag 9.5 return and 2 seio 850's.

Every site is different about them. http://www.marinecenter.com/fish/tangs/clowntang/

But probably not the best impulse decision I've made.
Have had good luck with this LFS and trusted his decision. My bad for not reasearching before hand.

Either way sounds like it will need a bigger tank someday.

I've been eyeballing a 180 for when we move to the house were building, I'm sure this the 110 should hold him until then.

Worst site you could have used as a reference Look at there whole tang section http://www.marinecenter.com/fish/tangs/ Almost all tangs can go in a 20 gal tank and even the link you provided states that a 13”+ adult fish is fine for a 55 gal

I’d trust liveaquaria over them any day. This profile is decent as well.

I saw that too. I belive they said the Sohol needs at least a 55g tank.

Yes, they are giving tank size on the baby fish they sell. That's not accurate at all. And while working on profiles, I find their info to be pretty generic. It is a beautiful fish and I hope it does well for you. Keep us posted.
