    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.

    Well after quaratining my 3 inch Hippo Tang for the past 3 months, I decided to acclimate him into my 125g tank......well after he went in, my 6 inch Purple Tang decided he didnt like the newest addition. The Hippo is hiding in a small cave, and the Purple is constantly ramming his body relentlessly into the opening trying to get to him. At this point, what should I do? Wait it out or try to move 200lbs of live rock to get the Hippo out? Ughhhhh _________________Auto Europe
