We want to get a Sailfin Tang for our 55 gallon. We have about 65lbs live rock and we are using a Aquaclear HOB filter. Can I keep this fish without a protein skimmer? We have had our tank since April and my parameters have been great so far.
I'm not some environmental nut, but that is the coolest thing:headbang2: . Being able to respect a fishes needs like that. Nice to read something like this once in a while when you read so many stories where people go against advice and end up refusing to believe their tanks are to small.:angryfire:I just recently released a sailfin tang back onto the reefs since it quickly out grew my 80 gal tank.
I admire your action. and agree a sailfin tang is way to large for a 55.A 55 gal tank is far to small for a sailfin tang, and just about every other species of tangs as well. I just recently released a sailfin tang back onto the reefs since it quickly out grew my 80 gal tank.
