You guys do a very good job of information but.... you dont tell wether some fish are endangered or about the food chain and if you do well i missed it.

Have just purchased Atlantic Blue Tang and I love him, he has settled in well and feeding at present mainly on spurulina, nori and seems to be accepting cyclop-eeze not interested in pellet food yet.
He is an adult fish and gets on with all the other fish.

I forgot to say he is also eating frozen mytus, green mix and whitebait adding a clove of crushed garlic seems to love it.

Wonderful center piece as they are so lively. Very much like the yellow tang in behaviour but less skittish and evidently more intelligent. In terms of feeding he ignores specific marine flake but loves Spirulina and brine/krill shrimp. Due to the difference in mouth he ignores the dried sea weed I put in unlike most other tangs. Well worth the cash just for the cleaning benefits!

Very beautiful fish - the picture doesn't do it justice. You have to look up close to appreciate all the fine detail on this fish. Definitely needs a long tank (4ft length) in order for them to be happy. Access to thin gracilaria is another plus!

this fish is very territorial. i have had one for 4 months. i added a chocolate tang and he harrassed it to death. also scared a long nose butterfly to such a stage of white spot and fin rot he also died. but after all that he is a beauty.

I have had a brown powder tang in my 150 gal reef for 4-5 years. Great Fish and very hardy once established. Not shy at all. Somewhat aggressive towards new tank-mates that are tangs (must isolate them for 3-4 weeks) to prevent the initial fighting. Most beautiful fish in my tank.

Very beautiful fish...but make sure that you check its body for any scratches (delicate shipper) and it has a sensitve skin coat so the net might scratch it. Make sure you acclimate the fish well. The most you should pay for this fish is about $35 (Sun Aquarium in San Jose, CA) has it for this price. Alright, hope that helps you fellow reefers.
