LOL CONGRATS KAR KNOW LETS GET ANOTHER!!!!

I think the purple or PBT are one of the best algae eaters out there but i could be wrong. I love to watch my tangs pick on the rock. I dont know why but it just fasinates me. IMO i think the PBT is better algae eater then the Purple but once again i could be wrong. I also think the tangs that i will chose from are great tangs.

ye theyre all great tangs. I would just have to go with the PBT obviously a small one but with you already having a sailfin its a difficult choice.

yea thats why iam not sure what i want to do. I think my best bet would be to add the purple after the sailfin. But i dont reall know i love all the tangs and they are all great algae eaters. Especially the PBT and the Fine lined bristletooth.

yea PBT's are great one thing about the PBT and the purple though is that they can get ich very easily. But the fine lined bristletooth i think they are great algae eaters. My LFS has one in there 300g system and all he does is eats algae all day long.

IMO any tank with a tang in it should be prepared for ich obviouly if its 200gallon+ they should be fine. Did you do the FW dip?

No i dont think the tap water will be good for the fish but i might get two gallons from the store and let them sit in my house for a week or two and then do it. The sailfin has passes it out to all the fish in the tank even the jawfish who hides in the ground all the time. I am gald i got those clowns out. I just hope my foxface doesnt die because he will be the next fish in the tank.

If you just buy fresh RO/DI then i dont see there being a need to let it sit for a week+ you should do the FW dip a.s.a.p now you will need to do it on all fish.

yea i think ill get it from a LFS or a grocey store around me ill have to see if my mom can go out and get some for me this week. The cleaner is working his butt off trying to get the sailfin clean and the foxface. It seems to be working a little and the cleaner wont even go near the Jawfish because he never will come out to get cleaned.

i think i can get the cleaner out somehow. I will probably take him out and add him to the 90g. But the only thing i might have a problem with is the corals. But i want to leave him in there for another day or two and see what he does and then i will go from there.
