    Powder brown tang

    Well I come home today to my powder brown tang missing. I have looked behind every rock. Behind and around the entire tank. I can't find him any where.

    Check behind the tank. If not he may have found a new hiding place

    If he died, do you have enough things to eat him that fast

    Do you have an overflow for it to get sucked into the sump? I've lost small fish that way.

    Yeah I have a hob. But the tubing for the overflow is to small for him to go threw. I might pull my rocks apart and see if I can find him.

    You think nearly 50 of them could devour a 4 inch powder brown in say 5 hours?

    Easily. Especially if they are hungry. Just give it some time he might just be hiding
