i have been dreaming of a tang. tank for months now, and i've decided that after my mbunas are gone, my 55 gallon will be full of the little shell dwellers... i hope that its no time very soon, because my mbunas are the most "petlike" of my fish, and I would hate to lose any of them (by the way, they're HARDCORE hardy... haven't lost one in I don't know how long... and only 2 ever). temp changes, water param changes, agression, etc... nothing gets to em. only problem is that the species that are available around here get too big for a 55 (unless you only want to keep a couple... no fun) ie: bumblebees, orange zebras, etc. my bumblebee has got to be a couple of pounds at least... maybe more. he's about the mass of a coke can; solid muscle. i think some dwarf shellies would make a very fun 55... especially because of the large horizontal viewing area.
