I personally do not think yellow tangs are a ich magnets. I just purchased 3 about 6 weeks ago and all did perfect. I consider PB, regal, achilles ich magnets. I think a yellow in a 55 is fine. I would not put one in anything any smaller though.

yellows are cool.

Hippo I could see being called a ich magnet but not a yellow.

Enjoy.

I have to agree that yellows out of all the tangs are the least of an ick magnet. IMO. You talk about an ick magnet try the Powder Blue or achilles. Not saying that they never would but it will be OK in a 55. By the way nice fish Hack.
