    I just got a purple tang today! He is only about 4 inches and he has the nicest colors on him. I will post pics later.

    Sam - he looks terrific. I think that the blue tang is beautiful. What else is in your tank?

    They are very beautiful, I have a few local friends that keep them with larger tangs and they say the purple is still the more aggressive one. I might try one in a future larger tank, but we'll see.

    Hope you keep sharing photos of your's ST

    Good luck with this fish.
    Do you plan on addding more fish to your tank? I heard they can be very aggressive and should be the last fish introduced.
