    Help me identify my tang

    I believe it may be a Orange Socket Tang but am unsure, here is the most current pic of him:


    Any help would be appreciated

    TIA,
    Josh

    not sure exactly what it is, but it will get to big for your tank if it is in your 60 cube, and it will get to big fast.

    It kind of looks like a Bristletooth Tomini Tang. Here's some info on it with a pic. But I agree with Bobby on getting the tang a bigger home.

    It does look like that, but they are usually more orange at the back. It could be a yellowed fin hawaiian
