    The achilles is a really beautiful tang and it is my most favorite tang, that is also a really good price, but you have a sohal tang already, they are extremely agressive aswell as the achilles being really agressive so there is bound to be fighting. How big is your tank yuri and how big is the achilles and the sohal?

    quote yuri "
    I have got my self a 180 *60*60 tank to use for saltwater fish
    i think i must get a bamboo shark and if it gets to big i will give it to a forum member if sum one is intertested"

    yuri i really feel that you are pushing the boundries with the tangs and bamboo sharl, blue sting rays etc etc that you would LIKE to keep. you really need to look at getting a big tank (2000l, 2-3meter length tank) in order to keep the kind of stock that you are attacted too.

    with a sohail tang and a purple in there already (i dont know what else) i would say be careful of adding other tangs that need BIG swimming space and that you might have teritory issues with.


    i just feel you are headed for a disaster if you stock too heavily with tangs in a 450l system. My opinion only

    only a 450l system thats WAY to small for a sohal and way to small to add any more, i would love a sohal but i cant get one because my tank is far to small BUT i am bust with a new 850l system :)
    get a bigger tank

    Yuri congrats on the wedding thing. :) Was that an invite to all MASA members to your special day:1:.

    A much better idea would be to open a savings account for future fish. Each time you go to a LFS and get the urge to purchase live stock stash those bucks in the bank so when your new system is up and settled in you have the bucks to purchase those show pieces. But if you purchase it now you stand a good chance of loosing it. Just my opinion. But hay opportunities for another Achilles or chevron well come along. :thumbup:
