That looks like a bristletooth tang, Nic....

Nic - I don't know much about breeding, but that combination of tanks does not look like it could be suitable. BUT, let someone who knows more, comment on this.

The tanks are interesting though. Not much swimming space for the fish though.

Interesting set up. What type of lighting can you run in these tanks?
