Scopas get pretty big don't they? I love my yellow, a bit aggressive but still a greta fish.

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

Your LFS is going to sell it with ick?

EDIT: just read the post on 13,,why not wait till they treat it for you then get it?Then do your own QT..
I guess i'm saying if you want it just wait..Don't buy fish just to get some..Wait till the one you really want is ready/available ..
I've been waiting weeks for one to come in,,still not in yet

I agree with FTM. If you have a decent lfs that will work with you, and it sounds like you do, get what you really want. I think anyone in tis hobby has learned the hard way that you need lots of patience.

On another note, my Dogface does the same thing when he sleeps. Looks like a quail egg sitting there.

Went ahead and got a yellow and anthias.... I'm going to get a golden naso tang. It's still not eating at lfs, but if it starts perking up, it'll be my last fish. Also going to start a 60g.

Looks like the pocket reference guide I have.

What kind of anthias? They can be difficult and need to be fed like 2-3 times a day.

You might wanna slow down, I know people hate to hear it but I have your best interest in mind.

I have a regular Naso. Took about a week for him to eat once I got him home. Great fish and loves its food now.
