I can't find much information about growth rates. I would like to pick up a juvenile but don't want to to outgrow my tank before I can upgrade any one with personal experience?

I know there is a lot of variables but just trying to get a vague idea, that doesn't sound to bad though

A lot to read on that blog!

I think I remember your post actually, I'm heading towards fowlr anyway so that wouldn't be an issue for me

They can be quite agressive as well but then every fish has its own personality.

Yup, I had a yellow tang that thought it was some sort of grouper for a wile.

How long did you have it for? Did it grow much in the time you had it?

It was in for about a month but was in with my tangs so they kept it's agression down as they did not take it off him.

My Tangs are laid back I have 6

Jewel
Sailfin
Yellow
Kole
Orange shoulder
Lipstick ( added last )

The last one I added a few weeks back a lipstick tang and the others did not bat an eyelid at it and they was all soon swimming with it so I'm quite lucky.

The thing is every fish is different you either get a good one or a bad one !
