First batch of new fish for the 75. They look big in my 29g QT but the biggest fish is the Yellow Tang measuring in at a whopping 2.5Ē to 3Ē! Paul @ Gerbers said all these fish have been at the store for at least two weeks. Thatís a big reason I went with these particular ones. I know the Naso will outgrow my tank, but Iíve never had this type and wanted to try one out. With my rock work as open as it is, it shouldnít be much trouble catching him in a year or two.

The yellow I got from gerberís has been super healthy and happy. Same for the orange shoulder but that had been there three months until I picked it up.

Honestly, Iíve only had a couple fish from Gerbers die on me out of years of buying fish there. I also have to say this was the least painful experience that Iíve ever had because I took the salinity down to 1.021 prior to heading to Gerbers. The fish were actually at 1.022. After about an hour they are swimming around and pecking at the rocks like theyíve been in there forever. The Naso even drastically changed color. So Iím optimistic that all these guys are going to do well.

Melanie's melanarus is a monster compared to the other fish.  Looking good

Heís a cool, peaceful fish. He does pick on the snails a bit. Never seen him actually get one out of its shell yet. Mostly just knocks them off the rocks. He also keeps the tang gang inline. No fighting....
