So your Niger is in a 55g tank only have filled? With turtles in it? Save yourself the heartache and find him a proper home, he will not be happy in small quarters (lunging at the glass) same goes for the tang, they are prone to illness when stressed (in small tanks) and when he develops ich it will be a nightmare for you to deal with. There are loads of great fish you can fit in a 55g that will make your tank colourful and active and stress free!

No he is not in a half filled tank with turtles. He is in a 29 gallon tank by himself.

I know the apartments I lived in allowed big tanks, but nothing over 125. I guess it just depends on where you live.

I got rid of the trigger. So all I have now is my tang. Would a coral beauty be okay in a 30 gallon?

It sure is. Read up on it in the nano reef section. Lots of good info. Sorry about the trigger, but there still cool fish and lots of coral options.

I don't want to start a reef tank just yet. Right now I just want a FOWLR tank. When I am able to get a large aquarium is when I'll do reef. I've had salt water since I was ten and have owned:
Bi color angel
Yellow tang
Clownfish
Damsels
Coral beauty
Blue tang
Niger trigger
Blenny
I'd kinda like to have something I have never owned before, in your opinion what are some other cool fish to have? (That would work for a 30g with a yellow tang)

I would not keep a dwarf angel of any kind in less than a 75g, maybe a Pygmy like a Cherub or Flameback, but even that is pushing it IMO. I know some sites will say its okay. I tend to be more comfortable with sites like liveaquaria that go bigger. IMO, too small causes problems the majority of the time. Larger rarely does.

A yellow tang in a 30 is a bad idea...it really needs about four times that volume.
