That's fair keep in mind from what I understand only certain tangs are susceptible to ich. Outside of my blue Tang my other tangs are robust. Or so the experts tell me . I've also had a yellow Tang for about 2 years no ich in my 75g.for me ich is a huge NO because of ich i lost a clownfish from my clown trio, i had to use copper, and i spent lost of money so that alone is a big reason why not to get a tang i will probably stick to planning a cardinal group of maybe 5 to finish my tank after i get some rock
That's a good point. When I added my second tang (kole eye) (first was a Powder Brown Tang) I actually caught the PBT and moved them both into a spare tank together (seperated) for about 48 hours, then I put them both in the new tank at the same time so that there would hopefully be no "territory" that the PBT had. It worked out well. The PBT kinda does his own thing (he does laps 24/7) and the Kole eye sometimes swims with him, and sometimes just hangs out elsewhere.One thing I diddnt see anyone else mention, if you do add tangs they should preferably be the last fish you add. Think real hard to make sure you don’t wanna add another fish that may be shy.
