Does anyone have or has anyone ever tried keeping more than one powder blue tang in the same tank?
The reason I ask is because I have one, a beautiful healthy one in my display tank which is waiting for its new home hopefully arriving next week. The new home is a 220 gallon corner tank.
In my QT I have another powder blue around the same size and also a very healthy specimen. He is ready to be transferred to the DT however I plan on adding them both at the same time once the new one is set up.
I believe I 'saved' this tangs life as it came in to our LFS
by mistake on a large customer order and was about to go into their tanks. I know for sure their tanks have ich and I also know for sure anyone in my area would have taken it home, thrown it in their ich riddled tank and it would be dead within weeks. The owner of the shop gave me the fish so cheap it might as well have been free.
I hope I did the right thing as not only have I potentially saved a fishes life, 2 powder blues would look amazing.
Current tank 260g FOWLR.
Fish: Moorish Idol, Powder Blue Tang, Hippo Tang, J Emperor Angel, 3 Chromis, 2 Black & White Clowns, Yellow Tang,
