    Yeah I would not add another tang, just let the existing one be the dominant life form in the tank and wait it out.

    Sorry for your loss. 17 years is amazing enough.

    Sorry about your Tang. FYI, I have a yellow tang going on 11y and introduced a purple last year successfully.

    How much did they fight? and what size was the purple tang? I guess having a 300 vs my 120 helps too.

    I used a mirror for a couple of days. They don't really fight. I also have a Naso, Blue Hippo, Kole, Convict. So, that may disperse the aggression...and yes, I'm sure having an 8ft tank also helps. A 120g is a 6ft tank?

  10. That is rough, RIP P-Tang. Good job to you for the 17 years of safe keeping also.

    With only about half that volume of water in the tank due to all the rockwork! :D
