    Tank is looking great but I do have one question though: How do you manage to keep so many Tangs in such a small space. From what I read they need lots of swimming space

    Does the yellow tang stay in that small chamber? Or can it get around in the tank?

    I hope you don't take offense to the following statement; but that setup is way to small, in terms of open swimming area for your current livestock.

    Really cool setup, what is the idea around the three chambers, can you tell us a bit about your filtration.

    Hi guys no offense taken,the tank is a 1000x700x500! The chambers are 300x700x500.. I have been running for quite a while now and no probs,Infact the tangs are much happier in there chambers then in the main tank! The only reason I sectioned it of was because I had some predators in before,had a lion fish and a clown trigger! Will post pics of the sump later... Also there is 1 tang per chamber,only fish that gets in are the smaller ones but they move to wherever they feel comfortable.

    how big is the openings between the tanks, if the smaller fish can move freely to were they want to go?

    Awesome tank, the three sections are cool, but please, those tangs on the left and right need to be in much bigger aquariums. Sell them or take them to a pet shop and get some smaller fish if you can. :)
