What you guys think of this for an assorted tang tank.

I've traded the air pump for a small powerhead, and tucked the heater horizontally behind the rock pile so it's hidden.

Contemplating ditching the clay pots and dividing the rocks to each corner. Any thoughts?

I'd lose the pots and plants, but I like the rocks as they are.

I think I'd lose the shells as well, but I can't see them too well. They don't look like ideal "shellie-shells".

What are the dimensions of the tank and which Tang are you thinking of keeping? A rock-dweller I hope. :thumb:

36 by 12 by 18 I think.

Shells are more for decoration then living quarters, if I get shellies I'll be searching out some proper ones.

If I replace the pots with "shelly approved" shells, would they stay away from the rock work?

Gonna look for some Ornatus and calvus plus some larger shellies if I can find the shells

Shellies like a bed of shells and a 6" open space of sand surrounding it as a barrier.

So if you are going for shellies you might make the rocks smaller.

Brevis can do with only a couple shells, so in a 36" tank they might be a good choice.

I'd only do one rock dweller in a 36" tank...calvus would be great.

I like 2 species in a 36" tank...I had calvus and caudopunctatus...it was a great tank. Some people like a small group of paracyps as well.
