    i just added a gold rim tang . he's about 3 inches in diameter,the lfs had him for 3 weeks. he looked in great shape not a single spot or torn fin .he cost 30 bucks i think it was a good deal. anyone else have one how do they usually do in the home reef?

    Dude wheres the pics? What are his tank mates? From what Ive read(no personal experience) you just meet the bare minimum for tank size.

    I'm have a Powder Brown(close enough).She is healthy and makes a good addition to a reef system.They will eat anything but make sure they get some seaweed/algae in there diet.I feed seaweed sheets three times a week for my tangs.I do like to add that they can be Ich magnets though.Keep stress and water quality high.
