I think it'll be just fine, but then again I plan on keeping one in my 90g until I get my bigger tank up and running.

People will get on your case real quick about a tang in anything less then a 6ft tank(tang police). What will the blue tang be housed with?

The way I look at it, if you keep up with routine maintenance and whatnot, he should be fine. Yeah he will get big but in a 5ft tank I don't really see a big issue.
