My 72 FOWLR is looking strangely empty now that my yellow tang has passed.

So... i want another tang... should i go yellow or another kind? If so, what are your suggestions?

Thanks!

The Sailfin Tang is a very nice species , very hardy, and if you can find the Red Sea variety they have some nice markings as well, however their disposition in the tank is quiet possessive, or territorial if you will, so choose any tank mates wisely. They also have a great personality Like me :ROFL:

I loved my yellow... he's gone now... and I think another yellow would be good cuz I think that any saltwater tank big enough should have one :D
My reef is my expression... its a mixed bag of a bit of everthing with no clear theme all including mood swings, many odd quirks, nooks, crannies, and the best part: growth
Questions about saltwater? Wanna set up an amazing reef display and want to do it right? Just ask!

Yup bought my first sailfin at about 3 inches , kept it for about a year, only got up to about 4 inches by then. still no problem in a 75.
