    Like Reefman, I've used a sailfin tang. Since I had a fowlr, I traded it for an undulated trigger. A very cool but aggressive fish. It would eat dried krill right out of my hand. ;D Had to sale him when I moved from Dallas [smiley=bawling.gif] because my apartment at the time did't allow pets.

    Cool, Showcasing Polls!

    I had a good hair algae outbreak at the end of my tank cycle. Pulled all the rock out and scrubbed it all off. 2 days later, it was back with a vengance!!!!!

    I got a Chevron Tang , which is a bristletooth tang, same as the Kole Tang. Now, I have no hair algae, and it also eats diatoms and cleans the sand pretty well!

    It also eats any and all prepared food I feed the fish!
