    Yip , agreed with ID. Typical tang precautions need to be taken ie space , similar sized / looking species etc etc. Had one for ages in my tank with a Powder Blue , Yellow and Scopas without any issues

    Yep, A. nigrofuscus. Second most common local surgeon. As others have said, one of the more peaceful species.

    Pencil surgeon (commen name), but they get very big, that is a baby, I seen them on reefs up to about 60-70cm, also their colours change depending on their mood, the large adults are like a yellow and blue, but do get very pretty
