I currently have Blue Cleaner Wrasse in one of my reef tanks and so far is doing well. When I put him in my Clown Surgeon needed a clean up. He got straight to work servicing him and my Purple Tang, he now keeps an eye on the Blenny and Gobbie that live here. He always went crazy for frozen shrimp but has now started to eat anything I put in be it frozen or dried foods. He eats all flakes loves Chlorella and Micro Green Pellets swallows the Blood Worms in one along with the Heart and Prawn mix by Marine Fuel. I am out in NZ and we have a great supplier here called Eastern Marine who Sources us a lot of Australian live stock. As a lot of us know Australians do a really good job of getting these things from the see and keeping them top notch. Matt at Easrern Marine is also very passionate about what he’s doing and keeps them this way for us to purchase. I believe this is a major key to keeping some of these things alive. I also think there are fish out their that we give you more problems that can take more than them selves out of your marine aquarium when it happens, such as the Powder Blue, Archilies tangs and other members of its family or the Moorish Idol that doesn’t want to eat or even a Copper Band Butterfly, so why not the fuss about these guys remaining in the see as they are going to give problems that will exceed the Blue Cleaner Wrasse. “CJ.

    8-10 tangs alone need a much bigger tank.  They need plenty of places to bed down at night to sleep.  I would get a much bigger tnak or cut down to 2 tangs.

    good luck with that

    8-10 tangs would be far too many in a tank that size. My tank is 7'x2'x2' and I house 1 yellow, 1 purple, and 1scopas tang and trust me that is the limit. They have been ok for 3 years now but still show aggression at least twice a week.

    If you do it right you will be fine. I have up to 18 fish in a 400 litre Aqua One Tank with over half of them being mixed Tangs with no problems what so ever, also full of Coral with every square inch covered in Purple and Pink Coraline Algea. Water change when once a month keep dosing for the corals and keep them full of greens as well as frozens and you can have one of the nicest aquariums around. I still have this Tank along with a very full 500 litre and a 220 with Four Powder Blues in it.

I purchased a baby purple tang for my 75 gallon saltwater tank and at first it was very well mannered. There were other tangs in the tank of varying sizes, shapes, and color which it socialized with just fine. But after a few short years this fish grew much faster than any of the other fish. It would eat a variety of foods and soon devoured everything in site. It must have grown to at least 8 inches plus in body length and became too aggressive for the tank. Although this fish was just beautiful and I hated having to remove it, I had no choice. Besides the issue of competing with the other fish for food, it would swim so fast around the tank it started knocking things over (like various corals and rocks placed throughout). It was traded back to a local distributor and eventually found a new home in 200 gallon tank.

Hi, just want to add something about this fish life span.
I bought two young Amphiprion frenatus early 1988. After a while they turned into male and female. The produced eggs some times, but no larvae survived due to other fish in tank, I presume.
The male died after just 10 years or so.
But, today, the female is still alive. Soon turning 30 years !
As I have been told, the life span is something like max 18 years or so.

    I've seen them at Blue Zoo Aquatics, but I recommend you having the proper setup for them.
