    To be honest it is a bit difficult to tell with SW fish. Ironically, SW will can be stunted even when they do not appear to be too big for the tank. That is why it is so important to keep fish in...

    I can respect that you try to do the responsible thing with keeping your fish, and I'm not implying that you don't. It's not so much a matter of "the Tang police" (goodness knows I'm not a member of...

    Probably not. the biggest issue you have with adding aggressive fish to the tank is the fact that you have the Firefish in there. Those are rather passive and in the presence of fish that are much...

    Ok, I just kind of skipped to the end but I am really hoping that somewhere in there you upgraded that tank drastically in order to properly house that Tang.

    Just wanted to post a couple of things in here since I have kept dirt tanks in the past.

    Cliff, have you ever seen a full grown Scissor Tail? lol They may be skinnier than a Chromis, but they still get 5" long. I certainly would not suggest more than a pair for a 55gal aquarium.
