How big is your Emp, how long have you had it? Do you think it will outgrow your current tank?
Powder blue tangs!!!Happy Monday and happy BIG FISH week! This week we'll focus our topics around those fish that are big, beautiful and poop a lot. What are we calling big fish? Well I guess it's any fish that might grow up to 8-12"+ or so maybe? That's up for interpretation. When I personally think of "big fish" I think of surgeons (tangs), large angelfish, rabbitfish etc. So let's kick it off today with some basic questions!
1. What's your most favorite "BIG FISH" in the hobby?
2. How many "BIG FISH" do you currently house in your reef aquarium? Which ones?
I have 4 fish that get over 8” but three are engineer gobies and shouldn’t be considered big fish. My purple tang may get over 8” and I also have a few fish that can get to right at 8” (one spot foxface and CBB).
There are a lot of fish that I’d like to have but can’t because of size, like a orange shoulder or naso tang.
My three are roughly a foot long but probably only as big around as a finger or a litter bigger. Still nothing compared to mass of an equally long “traditional” shaped fish.I was in Chicago last week and visited the Shedd. I’d say engineer gobies can be considered big based on these monsters.
