I think yellow tang would do well to. They only get an inch longer than the kole tang. Anyways, fish rarely get to be their max size in aquariums. I've never seen a yellow tang longer than 6".

I don't necessarily think it has to do with exactly how big they get, but their swimming patterns. I had a yellow tang and he liked to make mad b line dashes and would run into the glass if he ran out of space. But I can't say for sure cause I only owned one and don't consider myself an "expert" after only 2 years of reef keeping haha. I'm sure I CAN have one, but it was stressful watching him beat himself up. The water tested fine and he was disease free, he just loved dashing.

Kole tangs are awesome! I have a 6 foot tank and would love to get another one, no doubt. The yellows do need the 6 feet though, mine is a racer, back and forth all day long. I don't know what he'd do in a shorter tank. LOL

Woot! Go you! I wish I could pick one up, I;m very tempted too. That would round out my tang collection very nicely I think.

Are you qt'ing? I would highly suggest it with a tang, even a kole.
