My sohal tang is about 6-7". I put it in the tank. It was fine for about a month then I added a king angel, french angel, blueface angel and rock beauty angel. The sohal tang went nuts and started attacking all the angels and my other tangs that were in the tank with him previously. So I had to take him out and put it in my QT.

I have one for two month a juvenile, probably 4 inches long. It is great addition so far, it helps control my alge and I feeds well from flakes and marine algae that I buy from my LFS. I keep him in a 55 gallon tank with 2 Yellowtail damsels a Ocellaris Clownfish and a Coral Beauty. All get along well but occasionally they pick at each other especially at dawn when they retreat to their caves. Between the 2 Yellowtails there is more conflict at times, but they also swim together when they are in a good mood. My tang seems happy but when I get near he retreats to the live rock, he is shy...

    WTH that fish has the potiental to grow to 10 inches in caprtivity and needs a LOT of swimming space. I reccomend 140 MINIMUM you better plan on upgrading soon.

The Orange Shoulder is a great addition to a fish only or reef tank. This is my second one (sold a previous one when I moved and couldnt take along my 120 gallon)and both have had the same great personality traits. They are inquisitive and intellegent; will eat from your hand and actually recognize you. I've had guests at the house and the tang was apprehensive in coming out from his rock work because he didn't 'recognize' the new face in his world. They will stay in or circle the end of the tank that you may be sitting at (surely waiting for some little 'treat' from you). I haven't found them to be aggressive to any other fish or tang for that matter, even though e is the biggest in the tank (approximately 6"). He will ocassionally 'spread his fins' as he passes others at times, but hasn't used his tail agressively with any other inhabitants. As a previous post mentioned, they will eat anything! If its in the water, they'll eat it. My tang actually over-indulges at times .. as I've seen him actually regurgitate algae after gorging himself on it! Very hardy, very personable .. an excellent choice for your tank!

I have a 180g tank with about 200 pounds of live rock, I currently have a blue tang about 4 inches long, a pacific sailfin tang about 2 inches long, and several other small fish. Will a yellow tang be ok with the other tangs?

    With tangs it can go either way.  They are normally fine if others are different shaped.  Some will get very territorial with other fish.  Should be ok with the type that you have and it sounds you have a lot of areas they can call their own.

    A year should be fine depending on what else you have in the tank.

    Tang should do fine as long as the tank is large enough to handle it.

Is this eel the same as the snowflake moray eel? And by any chance is the snowflake moray eel and the freshwater snowflake moray eel the same eel?

    Nope they look completely different. The Morey has stripes and the snow flake looks like it has more spots. Here is a bunch of pictures showing the snowfalke vs the morey
    Snowflake vs Morey and hope this helps.
