hippo tang

  1. NauticalMiles1010

    I’m looking for some fish for a Red Sea Reefer XLL 625.

    I’m looking at some tangs and Foxface’s. I think a Hippo tang is to big for the tank but what do you think? Are they reef safe? Are they aggressive? Are they hard to feed? thanks!

    Move Hippo Tang

    Hey all. I recently added a few sunburst anthias to my DT (525xl Reefer) and my hippo tang has decided it would be great port to harass them and rip their fins off. I've decided rather than remove them I'd rather toss the Hippo in the penalty box. Any ideas how to get it out? Every time I go...
