This is my 5gal nano-reef. There I have a feather duster, one anemone, one three stripes damsel, one clown fish and one 6 month old nano reef grown regal tang (1 ½ in). I have waited 6 month to put this post and the regal tang hasn’t grown any more. So if you are one that says that you can’t put a regal tang in a nano reef, you're wrong...

dude you have way to many fish!
get more fish lmao toss a lion fish in there too
Many well known aquaists don't recommend this,not just b/c of water quailty, and etc. It can also lead to serious problems aggression. If you take the time to learn and research you would known about some reef fish defend and protect large amounts of terriorty. Also I don't believe in keeping sea annemoles in small nano-reefs, due to the size they obtain, and waste it can produce as it grows. If your not going to take the time to setup and research, find another hobby. I don't mean to sound like an a**hole, but if your not going to due it right, then don't do it at all.

It's not that it is physically impossible to put that tang in your tank... It is definately possible, but it will die. Those tangs can grow to over 1 foot in length... Just because it hasn't grown in the past 6 mos. doesn't mean that it won't ever get bigger. There is a reason that people get pissed when people do this... just because you can do it doesn't mean that you should. Do your research so that you can provide your fish with the care necessary to give them a decent life. Disappointing.

It's physically possible, but you shouldn't do it. Tangs need a lot of space to swim.

I would think it was a cool nano if it just had the clown and the feather duster. Is that live rock or just decorative dry rock from a LFS bin? Is the anemone still alive roughly a month after this picture was taken?

are u sure thats 5 gallons? It looks bigger to me... if its 5 gallons im sure ud be pushing it with even a clown, n i bet that regal tangs tiny, i saw some babys at my lfs the other day tiny little things they were...

It's possible to keep a human alive for years in a closet also, no problem. Would you like to live in a closet though? Bring the tang back to the store or get a WAY bigger tank for it if you care 1 bit about animals.

All i hav to say is that regal tangs in the wild grow to over 1&1/2 feet, what happens when this fish is put in such a small tank, is its life span greatly decreses, so from a fish that can live to be from about 10 - 20yrs, that tang will only live about 1 or 2 if ur lucky, no offence, but dats a bit cruel! jokes ur perogative (like the pun @ brittney).

i think your tank is the ugliest thing i have ever seen..just to be honest with you..i hate tanks that look bare...yours is almost like a FOWLR...just to be honest
Posted September 2, 2005
I agree. Pretty ugly tank
Posted September 10, 2005
Thats the Ugliest tank i have EVER seen!! Dude keeping a regal tang in a 5 gallon is not only cruel, but also very irresponsible.

stop flaming people like they don't know anything. It's his choice if he wants to keep a tang in there
you are an a$$hat.
Posted October 11, 2005
just do your reacerch, if i were you ide turn all the fish in but the damsle or the clown not both, or just get another SMALL fish, and DEFENENTIALLY dont keep a damsel with another fish in a 5 gall!

He doesnt care about the fish, he just wants a tank that looks cool to him
even though it doesn't
Posted January 2, 2006
HOLY CRAP! thats a frikking tiny tang!! i do very well suggest you tyake the damsel out(evil little $h!+$), and soon in the future, the tang as it will gedt far too big, in about a month, i reccomend having only the clown in there
BTW, too all you people who are saying, to "take the tang out, it will get 1 1/2 ft long" i agree, but you catch more flies with honey than vinager, so, be gentle and edgucate(sp?) the poor guy, dont scare him off.

hahah you guys are mean lol. this is the first time i seen someone saying another persons tank is ugly lol

Dude, I just converted to a salt tank and after doing research isn't it supposed to be 1 inch of fish for every 2 gallons??? This pretty much means you can only have 1 fish in a five gallon nano not all that shiat you have.
