thanks

I do, but you don't want to hear it. Take them back until your tank has been upgraded. As far as them fighting, they will until they get used to each other. Then they should be ok......but not in that tank, theres no room for them to bail out of hostility.

like i said there just 2-3 inches long max ive seen lots of tanks on youtube 55 gallon that have tangs,foxface,lions,etc.. i no ill have to either upgrade or take them back and get store credit in the near future,but i have about 50 lbs of rock in there giving them lots of hiding places and room to swim i think they will do alright for now as the tank is 4ft long and its not filled up with corals and rock or anything like that it defiantly doesn't look crowded to me they are never swimming up on the glass or anything showing signs of no swimming room
