So I have 4 juvenile tangs. 3 in QT, 1 in my DT.

My display tank has a 2.5” inch Blue tang that has been there for a year.
My QT has a 2.5” yellow tang, 3.5” Achilles, and 3.5” Powder Blue.

I have good filtration and so plenty of water changes, so I’m curious what everyone thinks about eventually adding those three tangs to my DT

I know I read it,sorry if I’m causing you heartburn...what I read that phosphates if not stable just like alk by dropping too fast can cause the coral to stress which could lead to rtn

I have 5 tangs in my 6ft 135g. A sailfin, yellow tang, tomini tang, yellow eye kole tang, blond naso tang.

The tomini and yellow eye dont get very big at max size. The sailfin is ny biggest probly a good 9 or 10 inchs. But hes 5-6 years old so i dont think hes getting any bigger. The yellow tang is maybe 7 inchs and hes 6 years old as well.

The blond naso ive had for 2 years and got him at like 3 or 4 inchs. Hes probly about 6 or 7 now. Im not too worried about my tangs getting too big.

But i will say the amount of feeding for many large tangs is alot of food. They all get hungry fast and i have to feed 3-4 times a day. I also have a foxface thats about 9 inchs long now.

I have 5 orchid dottybacks. A purple tip dottyback. A royal gramma, neon wrasse, melenarous wrasse, cleaner wrasse. Rusty flame and potters angels all in this tank.

I think it'll work out great, especially since you're adding the Achilles and PBT at the same time and they are larger than your existing hippo. Good luck with your beautiful additions.
