Well I quarantine before putting in the tank. So he'd be treated for ich no matter what. That's a tough decision lol

Yeah definitely. Especially the powder and make sure it's eating if you get it. Well that's for both actually haha. The orange shoulder goes through a slight color change as it matures too if that influences your decision.

Yea the one in the store is yellow right now. He's so little and cute. He's been there over a month. I guess if I go in there in a week and he's still there I might go ahead and get them. Might ask of he's eating good too. The tags show what date they were shipped and it showed January 14th. I never see powder blues in any stores here.

Ugh I don't know! I really like powder blues. That was what I was thinking about before I saw the orange shoulder tang haha. I wish I had a 500 gallon tank haha

I would, orange shoulders are very cool tangs especially when they get big.

Powder blues are notorious for being aggressive. Those and Clown Tangs. I'd go Orange Shoulder.

I've only ordered a fish online once. A purple queen anthias from reefs to go. It didn't make it through the night. But that was before I quarantined and now I read those are pretty sensitive. I kind of like seeing the fish before I buy them. But I have heard good things about liveaquaria. But I guess if I go to the store in a week and he's still there I'll get him. If not I'll get a powder blue. I'll be really screwed if by then they get a powder blue and they still have him haha!

Ok I think I do want the orange shoulder tang. I do really like those and I wanna keep my tank aggressive free and so far everything that I have is pretty docile to each other. Besides my clownfish going after my hand if I put it near his corner haha

I'll post a pic of him when I get him. My boyfriend is buying him for me for our 6 year anniversary present. He gets paid next Monday though so I hope he's still there.
