Hey y’all,
I currently have a juvenile blue tang, and a small gem tang which are gonna go into my sps reef!
I’m trying to decide if I should go with a convict tang or a one spot foxface to complete my trio of algae eaters.
What do y’all think?

some of the other inhabitants of the tank will be a couple fairy wrasses, anthias, maroon clown pair, and 3 ribbon eels.

A convict or FF should really either be able to round you out.

Personally, I lost my Tang gang to velvet a while back. I'm replacing my YT with a one spot FF.
I’m thinking of going with a convict…slightly cheaper and I really love the pattern on them. I might even be able to get both, once the corals are grown out and there is more hiding places.

I had 4 tangs in a 120 in the 3.5-4.5" range and they were all A- Okay.
