OHHH Love the Lemonpeel Angel!!!
I've always wanted a cleaner shrimp too, but are so hard to find in Australia.

How long have you had it running?

Hate to be the Tang police, but that yellow Tang might outgrow this tank. A size of 100G is minimum for these guys.

Nice tank! Can you post a FTS (Full tank Shot)

Looks great! I like the small caves/overhangs you built with the live rock. I love the lemonpeel too, one of my favorite fish

Its not so much as the tang will get too big for the tank but more towards the tank being too small for the tang to swim in,Tangs could do with at least a 4 foot in length tank.

It was highly recommended that a 6 foot tank was in order for yellow tangs when I wanted mine. So I got the 6 foot 125g for tangs. The Kole tang is supposed to do ok in a 4 ft tank, but when I had my Kole he was more active than the yellow! The yellow just races back and forth all day long so I can see the logic in the long tank.

I think your tank looks very nice and other than the Tang in there you're doing a great job!

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

Yea I know now about the tang. At the time of purchase the lady asked me about my aquarium size and after I said 55 she went on and on about hers. She had a yellow tang and a sailfin tang along with many other fish. Now the blame is on me for buying my tang but I see it as a good thing, once he show he is out growing the tank it gives me an excuse to upgrade tanks lol.

Plus I looked everywhere for the receipt but I can't find it
