    Coloring of Tomini and Kole Tangs

    Curiosity question here. Do the tomini and kole tangs darken in color with age or is it just random special variation? I’ve seen tominis with a pale grayish colored body and then ones almost black. A similar thing seems happens with the koles with that light orange color in the body to a deep...

    New Tomini tang with weird white "thing" on the side of his face.

    Hello! A few days ago I bought a Tomini tang that has been doing quite fine. (Eat quite well/seen him grazing from the algae and Nori that is in the tank and starts to swim around more and more now) However He/she started to have a white "thing" on the side of its head that looks nothing like...

    White spots on Tomini Tang

    I've got a very shy Tomini Tang who is hard to get to hold still long enough to take pictures of but hopefully these are good enough. On the fish's left side near its dorsal fin are a couple of white spots. Could someone help me to determine what this might be and if what I'm doing is...

    Bristletooth Tang Health Rapidly Declining

    Hey all, I’m getting desperate for some answers as my bristletooth tomini tangs health seems to be on a rapid decline. About 4 weeks ago, I noticed a white patch forming on the tang and it looked almost like the consistency of cotton. It started off small and after some research, it seemed to be...

    Hello Tomini Tang aggression towards Bicolor Blenny

    Hi all, I’m wondering if someone’s had similar experience and could possibly offer some advice? I isolated a juvenile Tomini Tang who after a couple weeks of being super chill and peaceful.. began aggressively going after my Bicolor Blenny (also juvenile) Im assuming Tang’s aggression is...

    Tomini Tang rubbing against Naso Tang

    I have an established fish only tank. I have a relatively large Naso tang I’ve had for years and a Tomini tang that I’ve had for about 2 years. They get along just fine. Suddenly, they’re both huddled in the back of the tank, the Naso tang is vertical, and the tomini tang is facing the opposite...

    Tomini / Kole / Yellow Tangs

    Hey folks, Want to get your opinion on tang compatibility. I am upgrading from a 75 display to a 125, 6ft display (the tanks coming tomorrow and ill start my build right away). I currently have a Tomini and a pair of clowns - my motivation behind the 6ft tank was to get my tomini the space he...

    Tang took a leap

    Last night I was tinkering with my skimmer after lights out and I must’ve startled my Tomini Tang because he took a flying LEAP out of my tank - I don’t mean he causally hoisted himself over the side I mean he took flight. It was so fast that all I heard was a splash and then wild flapping...

    Tomini Tang acting strange

    I'm hoping someone can help me identify if something's wrong with my Tomini Tang or if it's recent actions are nothing to worry about. Yesterday I noticed that she was swimming frantically at times as well as swimming sideways. Today I've noticed the same but she's also now acting very...

    Veggie Clip is a Vicious Monster.

    Okay, I’m madly confused. I have had a coral beauty in my tank for a while now, and she does a wonderful job of picking bits of algae off of the rocks ALLL DAY. I recently added a Tomini Tang in after a couple of weeks in QT. I’ve never been able to get the CB to eat off of a veggie clip, no...

    Can I keep them? Tang police

    I currently have a 90 gallon tank with a Tomini tang, foxface, and a few others, but those two are my main worry. Anyways, where I live, I only really have one place to put my tank and it’s right below my TV. Because of that, I can’t have any hanging lights or it would block my TV. Well a local...

    Tomini tang white on nose.

    I have had this tomini for about a month now and he is an absolute pig. When I got up this morning I noticed he had a white spot on his nose. It kinda looks like he scrapped on a rock maybe. I added a foxface last night and the tomini has been pretty interested in him, so could them chasing...

    Tomini Tang Not Interested In Nori

    Hi all. I have a tomini tang that just doesn't seem to be interested in Nori. He recently completed a 4 week quarentine and has been in my display tank for 2 weeks now. He's been eating enriched Hikari Brine Shrimp and Hikari mysis shrimp vigorously the entire time. To feed, I've tried hanging...

    Tomini tang swimming at the bottom

    I purchased a Tomini tang from a member of my local reef club yesterday. He had the fish for 3 months before he sold it to me and only got rid of it because his purple tang was bullying him. I put him into my tank last night at 6pm, right as my lights were dimming down hoping that would keep him...

    Tomini Tang with Red Face

    Hi all, Unfortunately, I have what appears to be another sick fish. My tomini tang has a red face, stopped eating, and is swimming in a back and forth jerky motion. His breathing also seems to be slightly elevated. Ammonia and nitrite show test 0 ppm and nitrate at 10-20 ppm. Any ideas what it...
