Photo Caption:I really miss my sohal tang. Had to give him away. He was just too mean and was a real poop machine. I replaced him with a Pink Tail Triggerfish. He makes a mess too but is not aggresive.

About Yourself: Started with a 10 gallon fresh water tank when I was 10 years old. Did that for 2 years. Didn't get back into the hobby until 18 years later. I had one 55 gallon fresh water and another 55 gallon saltwater FOWLR. Finally upgraded to a 180 gallon tank and gave away the other tanks to my relatives.
