    the 1st tang, the pics are bad. It could be an orange stripe bristletooth
    the 5cm one is a Zebrasoma desjardini, sailfin tang
    the last could be a white saddle goatfish

    Thanks

    I think you looking @ the text rong...text is for the pictures above it.... the first 2 pictures are of the same fish.

    SailFin Tang is not 5cm...this guy is about 10cm big...this guy is awesome....changes from a dark shade to a light shade....

    The goatfish....dont think its a white saddle...just googled it...doesnt look like the one i have...he is more like browny red....tends to change color every now and then according to the rock he is hiding by.

    Post full specs of your tank, including lighting, filtration and what livestock you have.
    The anemone in the picture looks a bit bleached. Dont rush into buying a bigger anemone.
