Well as sensitive to stress as clown tangs can be and the fact that within 5 minutes the clown had a frayed tail and frayed dorsal and was hovering in the corner vs hiding in the rock, I knew waiting it out would be a dead clown tang.
I figured I had a 50% chance, so it didn't blow me away that it went down like that. Bummer though, given the powder blues reaction I don't think I'll even bother trying a naso, they are a bit tender when new also. In fact I just wont bother with any more tangs. Which is a bummer but that pbt is so perfect and pretty, I'll just live with what I have tang wise. The pbt gets along with the orange shoulder and sailfin, but the pbt was the last tang into the tank.
Funny thing that pbt got the same treatment from my blue hippo when it went into the tank. Except the pbt was in much worse shape after the whoopin than the clown I just took back, the pbt had most of it's dorsal and practically an entire pectoral fin gone, as well as numerous scrapes and all other fins frayed. I removed the hippo for aggravated assault. Within 3 wks you couldn't even tell the pbt had been abused, never any ich or sulking, and literally as soon as the hippo left the tank the pbt came out of the corner and started eating. Now the pbt is the abuser, it all goes around I guess. Pretty long post for me, sorry about that!!
