    I am geting a nuvo 30 tank and was planning to get two clown fish and was wondering if it would be ok to have a yellow tang in it. I have seen it in many nano tanks but still want to make sure?
     
    Also is the red spotted blenny an good fish for the tank?
    THANKS!![​IMG]

    I have always read and been told that tangs need at least a tank that is 4 feet long. My tang is in a 55g setup and is happy. I have read that is the minnimun for yellow tanks. Clown fish would do great in a 30 and so would a six line wrasse

    I can't read that font. I had to change it to make it legible.
    Use the regular one.

    Tangs in a nano is like goldfish in a bowl. Lots of people do it, but that doesn't make it good for the fish. Tangs are big swimmers and also very disease-prone when stressed, and being in a cramped space can contribute to that.
