Afternoon, I just did a major upgrade and ontop of it moved houses. I have a 8'x3'x30" tank now. I was able to move everything without losing a single coral or fish. I pretty shocking, I surprised myself. Anyways, I'm looking st adding more fish and 1 of them being a shoal or a clown tang. I know these are both aggressive fish. I wanted to get some input from people who have or who have owned them.

Current stock-
Chevron adult tang- 8-10"
Purple tang- 6"
2 yellow tangs- 5"
Powder blue tang- 8-10"
Regal angelfish- 6"
Midas blenny
Cleaner wrasse
Couple small gobies
Couple chromis
8 Anthias

I will also be adding about 6 wrasse, 2 copperband butterflies, filefish, 10 more Anthias, and a dwarf angel or 2.

Thanks for any input
Dave

Or do I skip that idea and go with something more "standard" like a blonde naso or a orangeshouoder

I have kept the Sohal on two occasions, clown once. Sohal was the more aggressive of the two, particularly once it attains some size. Second sohal killed most of my tangs and would actively try to attack my arm. Never again. Nice size tank. Got one of identical dimension sitting in the garage. Change over to come.

Both stunning fish, that's what's always had my interest. I've heard clowns are little less aggressive but more health issues. How was your clown? The biting of the arm reminds me of a clown fish. How annoying is that, especially when I'm on a stool armpit deep in the tank

If it was just biting ...... :( Sohal would actively try to slice me with its tail scalpel. Didn't do major damage, but still.

Nasos are very mellow and beautiful. I would go with a Naso over a Sohal any day.
