View Full Version : Gem Tang Questions

Is a Gem Tang likely to have problems with: a yellow tang, chevron tang, or pyramid butterfly fish? That is, will these fish disallow insertion into their environment (either a 220 or 350 gallon) Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your post. There is a possibility if you add the Gem Tang into a large tank such as a 220 or 350 with plenty of hiding spaces; it may be compatible with a Yellow or Chevron Tang already housed in your tank. However, since each fish will have there own personality and aggression level, we would not be able to guarantee that a Gem Tang would acclimate well into a tank that already contains other Tangs. When adding multiple Tangs to an aquarium, we recommend adding them at the same time to possibly help reduce any aggression between the fish.
