    I agree, although a clearer picture would be helpful. :)

    Carib Sea Tahitian Moon I think they call it. It is pretty fine and very consistent in size. It’s a little shiny so it shimmers a bit. Like little pieces of coal.

    How many tangs can I keep in a 70 gallon? I've thought about keeping like 4 yellow tangs. I already have one so not sure how to add more...

    Four tangs - especially four of the same species - would be considered pretty darned tight by most folks. I might consider adding a smaller bristletooth to the yellow in the 70, but wouldn't try to add three more Zebrasoma.
