Sohal Tang

I have an 8Ē sohal tang in quarantine for quite some time. He is ready to go to my main 540g DT. Before I do so, I want to get your experience about mixing it with larger tangs like dussumieri & vlimingi, smaller tangs like black and Achilles, large angels, Moorish idol, and harlequin tusk. Is it a nightmare or has there been more pleasant experiences?

Typically the larger and more mature/comfortable they get in a tank they turn into murderers unless in the largest systems (1000g+) it’s a roll of the dice. Could be fine for months then turn, could be years.. might not ever happen.

Sounds like a clown trigger. Do they also target fish other than Tangs?

Yes I have heard of them wiping out whole tanks, thatís less common though.
