Re: Orca 450 Questions #81
Tangs can be quite viscious apparently so might be best getting the clowns first, might have to take a trip up there only 20 minutes up the road.

Regal tangs can be quite difficult to keep. They are particularly suseptable to itch (white spot)Lovely fish though

Re: Orca 450 Questions #84
Well chuffed, just found a hairy crab in amongst my live rock, rock has been in 4 days now and really is coming to life, but this is my best discovery so far, the crab crawled out just b4 lights out time, crawled out of a hole around a few rock ledges then nestled in to a small cave and started nibbling on the rock surface, wasn't a bit afraid of my ugly mug staring at it for 10 mins.

Re: Orca 450 Questions #85
Thats good to hear matey, at least you know there is something going on in the rock, giv it another couple of weeks and you should have quite a bit of activity!

Have you been along to that fish shop that sell the Tiny Tangs recently?? How much were they?

Re: Orca 450 Questions #87
Any chance you could get a bit more information from the shop about them, i.e. how big they actually get, what they feed on, ease of keeping etc.

Im fascinated!

Re: Orca 450 Questions #88
Funny u should ask, this is exactly what I asked on Friday when I went - they grow to about 4" approx, I was advised that they could only have 1 in a nano due to the space needed, they have the same characteristics as the Regal Tang and feed on the same stuff also.

Re: Orca 450 Questions #90
Seems so, as they can be quite aggressive, I will confirm as I am going to Capel within the next hour, so will get as much info as I can
