    Eventually i think a few of the tangs will need to go, other than that i don't think its that outrageous if he keeps up on mainteinance and has the proper filtration.

    Most of the corals are fine the only thing I see is that the tangs gota go. Not tang should be in a tank that small.

    I'm waiting for something to spook the hell out of the box fish and wiping out the entire tank.

    My thoughts exactly! My wife has always wanted one but I have avoid it just for that reason. If my wife sees that picture she'll be after me for one again.

    +2 on waiting for something to scare the box fish. I think they're adorable in a ridiculous sort of fashion but refuse to get one do to that unfortunate side effect...

    Not to mention that a mandarin could not possibly have enough food with that much competition.
