Captive Bred Yellow Tangs

In December, huge news was shared about how the Oceanic Institute at Hawaii Pacific University announced that they were finally able to state they had succesfully bred Yellow Tangs from eggs.  This hurdle was seemingly insurmountable, as captive bred tangs have been attempted and failed many times.  There are many articles you can read on this topic, including in Coral Magazine (Jan/Feb 2016)

As I read the articles in that issue, I thought how cool would it be to get one for my own tank, even though I have two wild-caught Yellow tangs in my 400g already.  I wanted a tiny one for my 60g frag system to keep it algae-free.
