I just read a good article about Tangs and the Space they need. I thought I would post it here being this is about Tangs. :-p


Fish Sticks, the best thing you can do with your dead fish.

Most aren't trying to be tank police, just repeating what they have read or been told. My experience gives me the theory that even if a tang is rated for a 180 minimum tank size then you can still over crowd them by putting too many large tangs in the minimum size. I've got my eyes on an Achilles tang but can't bite the bullet on one.

I put my first tang into my 110g tank, and he hardly ever stops swimming. They are SWIMMERS more than anything else i have. He may only be 2.5" and not much bigger than most of the other fish, but I'm glad i obeyed the Tang laws. The tank recommendation is there for a good reason.
Some fish host, some fish hide, but some fish cruise. The accepted tank recommendations are good.

To the OP, this may have nothing to do with you and is not a targeted post. Just wanted to share something I've noticed
