Be very patient in looking for a good fish and add it as the last fish to the tank. Even then, you should have a back up plan down the road in case it becomes to belligerent. Aggression increases tremendously with age.
By the way, my Clown Tang is my favorite fish by far.
By Regal Tang I meant the blue tang. :) I love the Clown Tang though and now I am thinking about that instead. ;)
