Bully tang

Hey guys, new to the FPRS group. You could say I'm new to the reef hobby AGAIN. Short version, I have a small 125 Frankenstein system I have piecemealed together over these last yr. I bought a 4 yr old established tank with a resident Sailfin tang and Red Coris wrasse. The tang is 6-7" long and really possessive of the tank. He harasses new fish to the point of exhaustion. Would anyone appreciate him? Would gladly trade for fish or coral. Hate to see him go somewhere he won't be taken care of but my tank is too big to have only 4 fish. He tolerates a large maroon clown and a reindeer wrasse. Other than that, not so much. Text call email if interested.... he is gorgeous but I want more in the tank ... thanks , Eddie 8503561281  schep75@yahoo.com

Lol, sounds like you inherited a psudo-predator tank. The raindeer wrasse aka dragon wrasse is going to get to be about a foot. And will turn into a interior tank redecorator. The maroon clown and sailfin tang both like being the boss of their tanks. You've got quite the motly collection. If you want to add fish to that current population you will have to add 2-3 fish at a time, and nothing timid. And with the 2 wrasses you have, they won't let you have a reef.

Sounds like the Sailfin is going to be one that needs a bigger tank as well.  May want to call the local shops that do maintenance and see if they might have a customer with a large enough/mean enough tank to take him in.
