I have had only good luck with my Perfecto tanks. My current 120 has been set up for close to 7 years. I previously had a 58 gallon which I kept as both fresh then salt for several years. I see no...

IMO, the eel won't be comfortable or thrive in a tank that size. Eels are great fish but need a proper environment to do well, like any other fish.

How long since you've seen it? IME, it's not unheard of for them to be scarce every so often, but they are pretty social buggers that are normally out and about during light hours. How long have you...

Simple flourescent strip lights will work fine. If you want to ramp it up a notch you can go with VHO or pc. I use 4 x 65 w pc's on my 120 and it's nice. Really shows off the fish.

Husband kills wife/self

What size tank are all of these fish in? IME it probably won't matter too much. Once it gets comfortable in your tank, I would foresee it killing the hawks, blenny and lion. When it hits 4-5 inches...

So the fish didn't appear to have this when you purchased it? Was the fish netted?
Doesn't look like anything too serious, and if the fish is adjusting well to the tank, and not in visible distress,...

IME, both the tang and trigger could co-exist, but I think the tank size will be an issue. Full grown, these fish need large amounts of lateral swimming space. I think a 4 foot tank is going to be...

You could go with one of the hardier butterflies but you may have problems with the tang initially. Another thought would be a small harem of fairy wrasses. The tank is certainly not overstocked so...

They can be nippy. I had one for a while and it took chunks out of the dorsal fin of my juvi majestic angel. Got rid of it. Interesting little fish but not sure I'd keep one with a lion of any type.

There's always that urge we have to add "just one last fish." If your tank is healthy now and parameters are in check, I'd suggest leaving it alone. The addition of any new fish can upset a balance...

My lfs can get them for $750 from his vendor (larger specimens). He'd then sell them for a grand. I know a few local hobbyists who would probably bite, myself not included.

How did you acclimate the fish? It may be adjusting to the tank. My experience with them is that if you buy one that is thin/emaciated, they are sometimes past the point of rebounding. Does your tank...
