Can I have all three?
My wife really likes the Yellow Tangs. I have purchased two in the past year...
The first, I bought from a less than reputable LFS. Well, I don't like stuff I have heard them tell customers, including myself. It was gaunt, and I was ignorant and thought that was how they look. In fact, it was so gaunt, I wanted to call it Iggy (Pop). But, he was dubbed Piano Teacher by our then two year old. PT1 never thrived. Never really ate. Never moved much, but never really HID either. And died after about a month. I justified the loss as me shopping poorly.
PT 2.0 was a nice plump fish, bought from a well respected fishmonger (right, Bryan?). I even bought the yummy green food that he was already eating. And, he DID prosper. Grew. Was sociable with the other fish. Chased down food. And had a brief love affair with the cleaner shrimp. So, it is distressing that he should just up and die on us.
Lose one, OK. Lose two? I start to worry. Can I really HAVE one of these little yellow critters? Should I try to talk her into something else? A foxface, for instance? It needs to live with a Coral Beauty, a Flasher Wrasse, two Banggai Cards, and an Assessor Basslet.

Yes, OK, I realize the next question... we have a Red Sea Max 250 - which has about a 56 gallon display area. Maybe 50-60 lbs of LR
, but LOTS of swimming lanes...
