Due to the Hawaii ban we can no longer purchase yellow tangs easily. I was trying to get a ‘tang gang’ algae clean up crew before any algae breaks out like suggested on the @Bulk Reef Supply YouTube page.
Does any have an alternative option? I mainly would like algae control so I plan on getting a lawnmower Blenny but I was wondering if there other tang available that graze algae as well as yellows. Thanks you

Kole tang and if you have it plan to get a 6 foot tank before they mature hippo and purple are beautiful options. I would stay away from the powder tangs. They are very fragile.

My Purple tang acts exactly like my Yellow tang in every way especially when it comes to grazing, when the lights are on they both graze on everything in the tank that has any hint of algae growing, from lights on to off.
