Beautiful Sailfin! The veliferum species of Sailfin Tangs has always been one of my favorite of all marine species.

Just my 2 cents.
Who knows you may decide to up grade to a 100, 125, 150 Ect. Your tang is just fine in you tank for up to a year. They do not grow that fast.
But aside that yes your tank is to small for him to live his whole life.
I had my sailfin in a 40 gallon QT for 8 months. Did not effect him.
Your tank looks realy nice.
Keep up the good work. Dont stop at the first person telling you cant do anything. lol

Thanks Pasfur & Brad!!

Off topic some, but I've decided after 4 1/2 yrs of not working, to finally go back to work! I'm DONE having kids.
So.... once again TRUKGIRL will be applicable! This coming week I probably won't be on too much. Trying to get daycare set up and a new job!

Job hunt is going so-so... apparently there actually are a lot of truck drivers looking for new jobs, blah!!

I added a cheap mechanical timer to the 10g, and finally got a nice dual digital timer for the lights on the 65g. Now I won't have to depend on anyone turning the lights on/off when I'm not here, lol. Also waiting to hear back from a guy off craigslist, has an external skimmer for $30 and comes with a maxijet 1200 pump! Would be nice to have extra skimming for when I get the corals/anemone going. With that said, my cheapo Chinese Jebo skimmer is actually doing a good job!!! I get the nastiest smelliest almost black skimmate out of it.

I have also been contemplating turning the 10g into a 20g tall. It would fit on the stand! I'd like a couple more fish in there, and maybe turn the 2 damsels back to the LFS.

Just wanted to say I AM alive!!! LOL! I am already looking for a new job... this one sucks. They hired me as a "replacement" driver but all I do is screw around in the warehouse all day with the manager breathing down my neck. I'm trying to find a job pulling a dump trailer again. Everyone in both tanks is alive and well! And that darn shrimp is now up to his 13th molting!
