    Good move putting the algae in the fuge. Emerald crabs will eat it also. They will eat all non-calcareous algae IME.

    I don't feel comfortable adding a crab to my tank. Oddly the only crab I feel is safe is my acro crab lol. I don't trust any other crab...I think its the shifty eyes :D .

    The redsea sailfin tang get much larger than the yellow tang. Like twice the size.

    Here are some more pictures. I tried using my nice dslr but some how the pictures turned out better on my phone :confused: :hothead: ...

    When you look on live aquaria it says sailfin get to 18 inches and needs a 180 and yellow only gets 8 inches they also recommend a 180 for the sailfin. A friend of mine works with an aquarium maintenance guy and can get wholesale prices on fish and he's gonna get me a yellow tang for rooting and modding his phone.
