Sailfin tang and rabbit fish

I picked up the sailfin tang and 3 days later I picked up a rabbit fish. From what I was told after I picked them up, after my research on live aquaria, I was told by the Lfs owner that those two would fight and have a massacre. After they faced off when I put the rabbit in they have been inseparable. No more than about 6" from each other.

That's not a rabbit fish. It is a type of butterfly fish. Possible a latticed butterfly but im not sure on that.

That is a type of butterfly. My sailfin and foxface are best friends and are never more that a few inches from each other.

Very cool. I stand corrected about it being a butterfly fish.

Nice tang. I think the sail fin is the most beautiful tang species.

Very cool!!

Reminds me of my yellow tang and foxface. They're never very far from each other. When I put a piece of dried seaweed on the clip for them, the first one to see it will grab a chunk and bring it to the other, basically telling then it's feasting time
