Our question this week comes from one of our Facebook fans, Mario. Mario asks, "Can a put a tang in my nano reef aquarium?"
This is a question that raises a lot of debate in the hobby. The reason is many hobbyists feel a juvenile tang will thrive just fine in a nano reef aquarium.
In reality, this is not the case.
We do not recommend that you put a tang in a nano reef aquarium. Typically, tangs can get quite large, anywhere from 10-15 or more inches long. If you purchase a juvenile tang for your nano reef aquarium, they will quickly outgrow the aquarium within a matter of months. Furthermore, a crowded, small aquarium will decrease your chances for success and increase your odds of inviting the dreaded ich parasite.
