Added some more fish last weekend. Three Yellow Tangs, One Sailfin
Tang and a Flame Angelfish (Centropyge loriculus). All fish are
getting along well. The other fish (two pacific blue tangs, three
Heniochus Butterflyfish, Longnose Butterflyfish and Golden Jack) hardly
noticed.

I'm going to wait a week or two and then add a large Angelfish
(probably an Emperor Angel).

Thanks for all of the feedback (except for the one idiot).

I'm going to also look into your suggestion (Foxface Rabbitfish). My
original idea was to get a group of surgeonfish. A group of three,
perhaps two yellow tangs and a purple tang. Or a pair of purple tangs
and a yellow tang. In a tank this large, if all were added at the same
time, they should settle down in a few days. I did this on a smaller
scale in an Oceanic 58 gallon tank years ago and it worked out fine.

My LFS is trying to talk me out of the tangs and into the Rabbitfish.
What is the attraction? Are they less boisterous than Tangs? Are they
hardier than Tangs? Will they do OK in a group? Or, am I better off
just adding one?

Thanks, again, for your advice!

P.S. all of the fish are still doing great! I just need to make sure
the food is broken apart in small enough pieces for the Longnose
Butterflyfish to be able to eat.


Tangs don't always get along that well, need to be fed often and stress
out
get disease easily.......
Foxfaces are just great fish, I have only ever had one in a tank so can't
talk about how they would go in a group.
But yea, maybe it's because I like scats so much and they remind me of
them....
Just friendly and cool looking
hmmm.... wish I could give ya a better answer but "I likes them' is
about
all I can find.

Yes, the tank looks amazing. Today, I added the last two fish. A
large yellow banded maroon clownfish and a blueface angelfish. All is
well with the following exception. I have noticed some aggression with
the three yellow tangs that definitely was not there prior to the
addition of the latest two fish. Since the maroon clownfish is a
fairly benign fish, I have to deduce that it has something to do with
the addition of the large blueface angelfish. He is about 6 inches
long. So, I am guessing that the other fish are somewhat intimidated
by his presence. I'm hoping that things will settle down in a day or
two. In order to help this situation, I have kept the lights off
except when feeding them. So far, the blueface angelfish has not shown
any interest in food. He has been eating in the store. They have had
him for more than 2 weeks. And, he aggressively fed just before I
decided to purchase him earlier today. This is why I still think all
will be well in a day or two. Am I correct about the aggression
between the yellow tangs?

Also, the three heniochus butterflyfish have exhibited cleaning
behavior trying to "clean" other fish. I know this is somewhat normal.
If it is not welcomed by the other fish, will the henoichus eventually
stop doing it?

Thanks for the suggestions. I will check out the online magazines.

I appreciate your comments!
