    Please don't catch what you don't know what species it is. Some tang species grow very large and finding homes for them becomes an issue. Be responsible, and collect what you know you will be able to sustain for many years. :thumbup:

    @Nemos Janitor, I knew it was a surgeon and of the bristle tooth family which is what I was looking for. I am more interested in the exact species. While I agree with not collecting for the sake of collecting I catch very little. When I do catch I normally photograph and release.

    Great to have a fellow reefer/collector that considers the environment. :thumbup:
