The only tank that's 20" is a 10g.

There is no 10g long. A 10g standard tank is 20". A 20g standard is 24". A 20L is 30" and so is a 29g.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I guess I'll keep the 10 as a qt, on a separate note. If I got a 50 or 55 gallon do you think I could house a kole tang?

I would stick to a 75g for the tangs. There are quite a few that will do well in a 75g. The tank would have the same footprint as the 55g but be 6 inches bigger from front to back. If I had to do it again I would have gone 75g instead of the 55g I got. So much more room for rock and corals plus the fish stocking is much more fun.

I would have to agree.

Zach, I would just go the extra 20 gallons and get a 75.

Yep, the 75g is so much a better option. If you have the 4 feet for a 55g then you have enough room for the 75g.

Would make it easier on us too, as we wouldnt have to pull teeth with your fish selections! LOL j/k. But seriously, get the 75g if you can. Promise you won't regret it.

Yep, the Kole, Tomini, and I think there is one more that I saw on LA.
