    Morning all, I'm looking at adding one last tang to my setup. Had the clown surgeon in mind but too many negative feedback then yesterday I came across a juvi tenneti about 4cm. Been reading up on them and they only have good reviews on these guys.

    Will it be okay to add the Tenneti to my setup? Also, Are they prone to white spot??

    DT Dimesions: 1500(L) X 650(H) X 600(W)

    Current tangs in order of dominance:
    1 x Regal about 16cm
    1 x Yellow about 10-11cm
    1 x Scopas about 8-10cm

    Other Mates:
    1 x Clown Trigger about 14cm
    1 x Niger Trigger about 10cm
    2 x Osc Clowns
    1 x Pyjama Cardinal
    1 x Cleaner Wrasse

    Acanthurus are generally agro and prone to white spot (which tang isnt :p) .. however this is not as agro as the other acanthurus like the powder blue. A nice fish but you will still have the same old tang problems (spot/hates other tangs). Only problem I say would come from the regal but as this is so small you can get away with it :) ... or the regal can kill it, but Im leaning more towards getting away with it :)

    I caught my little guy locally.
    Came into the tank, got white spot but quicly shook it.
    Got bullied by bigger Nigrofuscus, but not phased.

    Eats well, very tame, lovely subdued coloration.
    I highly recommend them.

    On a lighter side-note: Why are there so many Smith's in the telephone directory?

    Answer: Because they all have telephones... :lol:

    @crispin @AfricaOffroad
    Thanks for taking the time to reply guys ;)
    Now, the thing is I don't have a QT setup which wouldn't help in any case because I've had WS in my setup and never removed LS and treated the tank. I have since added 3 small guys, Lawnmower Blenny, diamond back Goby & Purple Firefish, they all doing great, if I were to get the Tenneti, would it matter if I QT'd it or not? I have seen it and looks extremely healthy and eating well.

    Are there any other fish in this tank? Something to rem is that EVERY tank has some form of WS in it but in most cases the fish are strong enough that you dont see any symptoms.
