    Here are a few pics of my 2 foot tank it has been running for about a year now.

    I run a skimmer and bio cubes in my sump with loads of macro algae.

    I also grow this algae in the DT and the tangs love it.

    The fish I have in this are
    Yellow tang
    Scopa tang
    Unicorn tang
    Smiths blenny
    Midas blenny
    Pair snow flakes
    Inverts
    Boxing shrimp
    Cleaner shrimp
    3 hermits
    Sexy shrimp

    Also a purple tip anemone

    There are leathers and hairy mushrooms aswell

    Here are some pics. First a full tank shot

    What are your future plans in terms of tank upgrade or adding more LS?

    Bud, Im in no way part of the tang police, but please do some research on tangs and tank sizes.

    Nice tank bud, like a few have mentioned, a 2 footer will soon be too small for your tangs. Pic #3 looks like a blonde naso & stressed at it too by the looks of it's camo colouring, can you give a few more pic's?
