Huma-Huma, no worries, I understand your points and completely understand not wanting to see someone end up with a stressed fish by something that could be avoided. It definitely takes a special kind of person to really succeed with an aquarium

Yes agreed, but very rewarding when everything is in check! Will look in to that type of shrimp

Tangs

As a new aquarist, don't set yourself up for disappointment. Killing fish is what many times causes folks to give this hobby up. Start with easy fish for the smaller tank (under 100 gallons), not tangs, or puffers or butterfly fish at first. Being in a hurry guarantees failure in this hobby. Cramming most types of tangs into small tanks rarely works, look at the sick fish postings on this forum over the years, there are hundreds (maybe thousands) of them involving tang issues. Blennies, wrasses, some angels, the list is enormous of fish that will live out their lifespans in your tank. Save buying the tangs for when you get a bigger system. JMO
