Trying out some CB yellow tangs… they are tiny!! Probably need 6 months in the holding systems before I add them to the show!

No, you wouldn't! LOL

Lost my old big ones after a lanthanum dose 6 months ago...

Biggest tang gang on R2R, they’re running things around here lol. Epic.

Basically every tang besides Achilles, Chocolate, Blochii/ringtail and a few rare ones. LOL.

I have a seasoned Achilles coming soon hopefully from a great guy in CA who's downsizing his tank. Can't wait.

I find that the Zebrasomas tend to just kill eachother off over time. My purples are huge and took out many of the other zebrasomas (I'm now replacing them with small ones) including my black tang!

I am a huge tang, big tang fan for sure!! Love to find a humpnose unicorn and a humpback unicorn tang for the tank one day... I'm on the lookout for those two... ;)

Thanks for chiming in!
