Wow that is one really cool looking fishy...Now I guess I need to upgrade to a 4 or 6 foot tank
They are. IF all goes well with christmas and birthday money Mine will be hopping in an 8' Tank of sorts when the holiday arrives.
Nice. Mucho nice.
Hows your little Achilles doing?
Nice write up. One of my favorite fish. K+
Thanks for the write up!
Couple of questions. When you say this fish will accpept frozen/meaty foods, are they picky of wich foods they eat? You said this fish should be added to an est. tank, so this would be the last fish you would add?
Indeed, Tangs need an established tank because of their eating habit and their bioload they create. Tangs like to graze off live rock constantly throughout the day. Making sure the tank is established helps out a great deal.
Once the fish are eating Prepared food. I have noticed they dont graze as much as they used the. Rather just waiting at the corner of the tank. Hence making sure they get the correct diet to support themselves.
Is the Achilles tang face black or brown? Whenever I see pics they are brown.
