    Hi all, I currently have a purple and yellow tangs in a approx 800ltr tank, my purple has been doing a little chasing around of the yellow tang, nothing too serious yet but was thinking if there was maybe 3 or more yellows in there he wouldn't focus in on just the one, will this just wind him up more and will this also wind up the yellow, I ain't just wanting to add the extra yellows cause of the chasing just would really like to add a few more tangs.

    Thanks all.

    you might find that your existing yellow tang may take a dislike to the new arrivals as well

    Yeah I was thinking that too, will just keep the 2 I have and be happy, I don't want an unhappy tank.
    Thanks buddy.

    Took a visit to my lfs today,
    yellow tangs £75 each due to the import ban from Hawai and yellow eye kole tang around the same price.
