Haha thats great. So what do YOU think? What tang is ok in a four foot tank if bought small for up to 9 months?

I'd love to hear an official tang polices' suggestions.



Thanks!!

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

Hold out for the yellow eyed Kole tang. Either get your LFS to order it or get it online.

Ok. lol I'm trying to wait. I just hate to spend the same amount on shipping as the fish costs. But if thats the only tang I can have now maybe I will consider it. How big do they grow? I'm gonna do some more specific research in a few. When I upgrade to the 125g later this year can i still get a yellow tang to go with the kole?

Sorry for so many questions!

thanks for your input, I really appreciate it.

i've never seen a foot long scopas in captivity. i've never seen one on a wholesale stock list either. i think that's a mistake. i believe them to get to be about 6".
meanwhile, you are upgrading to the 125. it will be fine for a scopas.
