i was wondering if anyone has or has ever had one of these fish. my husband wants one really bad and i can't seem to find a whole lot of info online about it. he's wanting to put it in a 90gl which i have read will be fine, my question is is that there is a yellow tang in there already and i don't know if the two are going to be compatable? any ideas or info would be great. thanks, gini

Mine was the first one in the tank and he is boss. A filefish can be passive but if picked on to much they can turn mean & nasty.
But they must have the tassles on them so my fish selection was done around this fish. They are slow growers and can grow to 12 inches, they eat meaty foods and greens and should be fed 3 times a day.
I have not had mine in with a yellow Tang but I do have him with a Pinktail Trigger, Bird Wrasses, Moorish Idol (seans), Hippo & Kole Tang.
Hope this helps

I had mine about 2 1/2 - 3 years now without a problem until today really.....
