So I thought I would as you guys what your thoughts where in this matter ?? and here is a list I got off line

The Tomini and the Blue will be the easiest to work with.


Most tangs/rabbits will get big so you will be back in the same boat at sometime. But go with the Tomini and Mimic, my $.02.


Yeah I like the mimic . I was thinking going that way but I only like the yellow not the chocolate one

Also there is the chevron tang. They are in effect the same thing as a kole but really pretty. I love my kole tang though. Look up vampire tang. They are also a favorite of mine. Something you don't see everyday and look great under the lights. I'll be putting one in my new tank if it ever goes up. Lol
