I only feed once a day - half a sheet of nori , 2 cubes of mysis soaked in selcon , and some new life spectrum pellets. The pellets are their favorite they will even eat all the ones that fall to the sandbed. Occasionally I give clumps of bryopsis from refugium and they go crazy for thatAny tips for getting them fat? How much and what do you feed?
Not a fan of them. I get it but just too typical. If I could get a latezonatus or some Madagascar then Mayb. Finding that short fin clown which was entertaining kinda left a meh feeling towards them soon after.Kind of like clowns, they are just classic reef fish that I picture when I see a true ocean reef.
As I read through this I realize my answer that I’m gonna give you is that most the alternatives that have been posted are not reef safe.Personally I’m not a fan of many tangs, I really don’t see much in the non-Ctenochaetus species. But I can watch them sometimes, I just don’t find it relaxing how they pace around so much.
1. what do you see in tangs and is there more than good CUC (which even then there’s other fish for that job)?
2. Do you have any alternatives to tangs that you prefer to watch?
P.S. the photo below is when I had a mirror against the wall of my tank for my wrasses and instead attracted my tang to it.
I feel the same with clowns, I only truly enjoy the hybrids and rarer species.Not a fan of them. I get it but just too typical. If I could get a latezonatus or some Madagascar then Mayb. Finding that short fin clown which was entertaining kinda left a meh feeling towards them soon after.
I’m intrigued you say that as I have never had my wrasses out right beat up a newcomer to the tank. Skittishness depends on species, most being much more boisterous and out. Spastic behaviour also depends on species but also tank size, if it’s too small then you will see that behaviour.
Definitely agree it’s all on personal taste, I’ve only ever really enjoyed the achilles outside of Ctenochaetus but again, it’s an Ich magnet and aggressive.
I was anti yellow and purple tang for SO long... Didn't want to be a bandwagon guy. Ended up getting two yellows and a purple tht were together for years for a heck of a deal almost a month ago and frankly I'm sold now! I had to pull two fish to make it happen, but no regrets.I like tangs. They have color and movement different shapes and provide a great service to the system. Fan of the bristletooth specifically the white tail and OG yellow tang just for the pop of color. And the compliment to her would b a purple. So yeah I’d have those 3 but I only keep a yellow tang because of my system size. The other fish add to the color and movement occupying different levels of the tank.
