They are all in the tank.
The bangaiis disappeared behind the rocks and the purple is out the front but slightly skittish
The yellow tang has showed very little grief which is quite surprising
Also, the purple tang is like the nemo of the tang world. He has a small left pectoral fin. I don't know whether he was born that way or if it was torn off during the collection process and started growing back during government quarantine.
It does look cool though. A mini pectoral fin.........
