View Full Version : What Tang to Get???

02-21-2007, 12:31 PM
OK, my Sailfin Tang died. He was almost 2 years old, so I guess that is a reasonable expectation. Now, I need a Tang for vegetation control. I have a Clown, a 6 line wrasse, Talbot Damsel, lots of reef stuff. Any suggestions on a tang and why?

I have a kole and a powder blue, both do a great job on algae control.

I guess the tank size would be good to know....I have a Lopezi tang in my 180 and all he does is eat....loves seaweed too!!

2 years is not to be expected. I have a sailfin that is comming up on 6 years in my tank.

I would check your water params.
