Powder Blue Tang/Health 3/3/08 I just recently purchased a Powder Blue Tang about a week ago. He is very hardy, started eating the first day, I have him in my hospital tank cause of previous problems with the Powder Blue getting parasites, sure enough he has them, <Not surprising.> not bad and is being treated with med's an 2 Cleaner Wrasses. The Powder Blue is one of my top fish but have never had no luck with them. <You and many, many more aquarists.> I just recently got rid of my Gold Rim Tang , which I had for about 3 years so I can successfully accomplish acquainting a healthy Power Blue. I've read that the Powder Blue is from South Africa an also Indo. Is there any way to tell them apart? <Do not believe so. Most are collected from the Indo Pacific.> I also read that the Powder Blues from South Africa are a lot more hardy, is there any truth in that? <No. Do read here and linked files above, will give you a some knowledge of what it takes to successfully keep one. In future queries, please do a spelling and grammar check before sending. Just do not have the time to correct/edit queries before posting. http://www.wetwebmedia.com/powdbluetg.htm James (Salty Dog)>
