Great thread and lots of good info. I want to have a few tangs for my 180 after its been up for a while. One of them may be a yellow tang per my wife's request (happy wife, happy life :D) I'll have to figure out who will be compatable with him and what they look like. :)

Nope . Not the same as a powder brown. Another name for a Mimic tang , is a Chocolate tang, or the scientific name Acanthurus pyroferus. They grow to around 7-8 inches. Great fish too, quite peaceful for a tang.
