Angel Tang

I impulsively bought a beautiful Angel Tang, I have a 125 rectangular tank, it has been swimming back and forth, looking stressed, is my tank to small for him?

IMO yes as they can get about 15" and super aggressive. How big is he? They are also one of the more difficult tangs to keep as they tend to not eat.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Clown Tang

As you can see they are for experts only. Very hard to keep alive.
