    They are all ok, and popular. If your new to marine fish though, it's nice to get a heads up some of the common problems with those fish. A lot of people keep them with no issue, a lot of people also have more issues with ich when they have tangs. The key is reduction and prevention of stress and good nutrition.

    Is the stress and lack of proper diet what cause the itch or bad water conditions? And would it infect all of my animals?

    Just read about it. Not sure if I want to take the chance but it is a juvenile. Ill post some pics I was sent. Of the four.

    You will come across ich eventually, unless you are relentless in quarantine practices and pre-screening of all fish. It's very common for tangs to be the ones that become symptomatic, visual white spots.

    The parasite resides in most tanks IMO. It is an opportunistic parasite, when any stress like declining water quality, poor nutrition, acclimation stress, bullying and over crowding the parasite rears it's ugly head.

    This is the reason good research prior to purchase of the general husbandry for all fish and inverts is essential. It will save you a lot of money and lead to greater success in the long run.

    So went to pick up my hi hat, baby tang, gold shrimp. And got some freebies two zebra fish is what he called them and the red cardinal and a goby and a pack of krill for there dinner hopefully. Now my 30 is going to fully stocked with small fish in preparation for my 125 but I do feel like I have to many now but w.e I only paid 35 for all of this. So will do best I can. Good thing us there all small so I have time to get my 125 up and running. Will post picks when I get home. Any advice would be great. As I could not say no agin lol what a hobby

    Every one is in and swimming together happy and eating all them I just been starring at it I love it. All the life every body is active. I hope all is well this is great. Best hobby ever ... its just awesome all fish are small. The tang is very active in and out of rocks. Flame cardinal is hiding behind a rock .. but it says is a night time fish. Here's a shot.

    Looking pretty good dskyers, congrats!

    If is on the sand and rock work most likely cyanobacteria, but need a closer image.
