Thanks all. The Naso tang brings quite lots of waste everyday :lol: ... Since my tank is small, I am afraid of getting the water dirty so quick. Besides the sump, any other suggestion please?
Thanks.

Don't worry about getting the tank dirty quick. Worry about if those tangs will actually get along in such a small tank.

Swing, tangs can get aggressive if cramped for space. As some tangs reach 25-35 cm, 46 gallons may not be enough to accommodate even 2 large tangs.:) 90 gallons will often be the option for 2-3 large tangs. Some may coexist but others will not.

Do the tangs really get that big ? We have a yellow tang at the office I work at, in a 180 gallon aquarium. His name is Barney, and I swear that thing has character! He's not big, though. He lives with Ethel, which is a trigger fish that resembles "Dory" from Finding Nemo.

Saltwater fish are so gorgeous and colourful; it's too bad it is so complicated to look after them. I would love to buy the senior lawyer at our office, a new fish for Christmas. But I'm not sure what I could get that is compatible with Barney and Ethel, and the corals that are in the tank. Anyone know if a butterfly angel is coral safe?
