    Looking for a paceful tang for a 77 gal tank

    I'm on the hunt for paceful tang or for a 77 gal tank.

    Thus far all I have been able to come up with is the Blue Hippo Tang/ surgeons. The only thing I am concern about is the size. All research states they can grow up to 1 foot in a reef tank.

    I'm looking for any input regading keep tangs... Temperament: and overal size...

    I would go with the Regal Tang if you need a little Blue in your tank, a yellow tang if ya want some yello, and if you want a nice little flash of colors i would go with a clown tang.

    I see my link did not keep the search results. Just change "dog" to fish and type in tang.

    Sorry

    Clown tangs get up to 15" long - definitely not good for a 77g. It's also one of the most aggressive tangs there are when it grows up.

    I've got a powder brown tang in a 77 , alls happy and well but I've got a very low bio load . He's basically the king of his domain with little else other than his mollymaids and 3 other pals of a small stature !
