Was thinking of moving the yellow till I sold it. He's finally calmed down a lil, but that purple is beautiful.

I agree, Purple Tangs are definitely high on the list of my favorite fish.

If you did keep the Yellow and buy the Purple, there may be a chance that they could coexist since the Purple would be added after the Yellow. I know that there is a good possibility that that would not work, but it is just a theory that I thought of.

Moderately aggressive. Not a good idea to be kept with a yellow tang or any other tang with the same body shape unless introduced at the same time. Mine is pretty peaceful as he is the smallest all of my tangs.

The yellow tang is much more aggresive than the purple! If you want to try it- move the yellow into a different tank for a little bit and then add both at the same time.

Also- my purple will show a few signs of Ich anytime I add a tang. Just something to remember. Fortunately, signs disappear in a day or so and don't come back

One last thing- if you are going to keep multiple tangs- be sure to have plenty of rockwork and plenty of veggie clips with a constant supply of seaweed. Some people argue that a seaweed stuffed tang is a peaceful tang and I have to agree with this

K. I'll move the yellow to the 60 for a min. My naso is getting better. It'll be the last fish in the 150g. It's about 4.5". It'll be the biggest tang. Really considering it. I'll also get more veggie clips. Tnx for all the advice.
