      I have a juv. Orange Shoulder Tang and its almost bullet proof when compared to my Hippo or AT. Eats everything and very active. Mine is about 3 inches long and still very yellow with only a very slight hint of the orange shoulder.

        beautiful fish. I wanna keep this, but I heard it grows faster...

        It is hard to keep in 125 SPS tanks alone?
        (I will keep the fish only 1 or 2 in my new tank.)

            Yeah, it grows quite fast.. bought it about an inch in length which is smaller than my kole tang but in a few short months, it have outgrown the kole.
