I figured out why the tangs were getting along so well so quickly. It was easy for the Powder Brown tang because I saw where he got hit, but it turns out that the Atlantic Blue tang got hit as well, which explains why he has accepted his submissive role so quickly. He actually got it pretty bad, even worse than the Powder Brown, I just didn’t see it until I came home one day and he turned yellow for a bit, then it was really easy to tell.
Yeah, there was a little bit of violence in the tank, but both of the new guys are going to be just fine, and I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out. I’m confident enough at this point about everything to officially give the new guys their names (and it’s about time, too).
The Atlantic Blue Tang will be known as Buzz
and the Powder Brown Tang will be known as Fido.
That’s all for now.
