yap , thats a blue tang , i must say soon he'll be too big for the tank , i got a 75gal tank housing frontosa , just didn't want to convert to sw yet due to the cost , propably later . i do have a 15 gal sump as well housing mainly marcroalgae , thanks for the compliment on my rockwork , it is always changing when i buy new corals , must have done the rockwork more than 10 times .is my placement of corals ok?

really cool rockwork...I enjoy the look of frameless aquariums so much...did you build yours yourself or did you get it from somewhere?

BTW, I know youre going to get it for having a tang in such a small tank, but i say as long as it has somewhere to go as it grows...all good (IT WILL have somewhere to go in a few months, right??!!).

I noticed from yuor pic that you have a hippo tang in your 15g tank?


I got a 20g tank and tried to keep a small hippo tang and got lots of disagree opions from the reefcentral forum debating that hippo tang requires at least 75g tank

what do you think?
