lol. Other than they are two entirely different fish? Some have similiarities in body shape and style but thats where it ends in my opinion.

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

Do they both just feed off the sand?

I'm trying to decide which one to get. So it can eat the food that the fish don't eat. Do they both do that or does one just eat algea?

There are algae blennies, like a lawnmower and sand sifting gobies.

I like blennies. Get a bicolor blenny. Wonderful personality once they warm up to you. Make sure you have plenty of "homes" for them.
