Hey all,
This is an update on the tang. The tang was taken back today, as well as some other fishes. I also took back my pajama cardinal and chromi. Now, all I have left is a clownfish. Now I don't have to worry about my tank being overstocked.

Hey guys,
I just got back yesterday from something huge. I have been out for 2 weeks. I went all over California to ask if I can keep a hippo tang in 20 Gallons. Out of 167 of them, 165 of them said yes, I can. Some said short term yes, and others said longterm yes, but it will be more difficult and this can be the only fish I have in the tank. Tomorrow I'm going to Oregon, to every single fish store to ask the same question, "Can I keep a Hippo Tang in a 20 Gallon Saltwater Aquarium?".

Not to be ugly but I dont care if you told me that 165 out of 167 said the world was flat. The facts are the facts. A tang can not live in a 20 gallon tank without suffering harm from the stress of staying in a small tank. It will eventually suffer from HLLE, Ich or poor health. I`ll trust my knowledge and experience over those 165.
