I'm tempted to get another Atlantic Blue Tang. The yellow juveniles are gorgeous! It's also fun to see them change color over time. Eats Caulerpa.

On the other hand, it's fun to try something new. Of the Bristletooth Tangs, the Whitetail looks amazing and costs a lot. These fish also have a yellow juvenile phase, but their adult coloring is also striking. These eat detritus, which might be a good addition.

Now that Yellow Tangs are being captive bred, I should get one of those. But since their diet is mostly filamentous algae, they might ignore the caulerpa, which would be bad. I need whatever I get to LOVE Caulerpa.
