I have a captive bred yellow tang also from LiveAquaria / Biota and he was about 1.5inches when I got him. He’s growing quickly and I would highly recommend getting a captive bred fish. You should have a 10-20 gallon quarantine tank for grow out because he was pretty small. He wasn’t quite ready for the 150g, but in QT he is perfectly happy and healthy. One of my favorite fish.
I love Naso and Sailfin but they are not for my 75gal :/My yellow tang was fist sized so maybe 3-4 incjes. My blond naso tang was also 4 inches when i got him. My foxface ( not a tang i know) was about 3-4.. My tomini tang was about 3. My sailfin though was given to me by a guy getting outa the hobby and he was maybe a good 6 or 7 inches.
My blond naso is now 6 or 7 inches.. yellow tang is about 4-5 my foxface is about 6-7 the sailfin is about the same 7 inches. Tomini is probly 4 inches now.
The rock I have are Pukani but someone gave them to me for free and they even had no idea where it came from lol.Subnautica.. (loved that game.. sadly the new one looks bad with a prebuilt base and stuff handed to you)
Where did you get those rocks ?? I mean i have some massive boulders in my tank.. one weighing 50 lbs but that one you have looks cool
I partially disagree, the smaller fish ship in transport better and arrive in better condition. Also, the captive bred specimens arrive in great condition. Plus you’re getting a younger fish to enjoy longer. But you make a point, it would be nice to have the option of purchasing larger fish. For me, part of the fun is watching it grow. Happy tangingI dont even see the wild caught ones anymorr..All ive seen are the small 1 inch yellow tangs.
To be honest thats too small... salt water breeders need to start the practice of selling these larger fish when they are 2 inchs or more.. Like discus.. discus under 2 inchs usually are never sold.
And i wouldnt spend 80$ on a 1.5 inch yellow tang.. Thats too much money for too small and fragile of a fish at that age. Im lucky my two yellow tangs were a good 3-4 inches because i just dont see em that size anymore.
