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

I have kept them for years. Have one that is 8 years old. 125 gallon should be fine, start with little ones about the size of a silver dollar. They grow into the tank size, I have never seen one that outgrew his tank. If so, he will need a bigger home!

Carey, as far as having a Kole and a Yellow they are compatable. I have a Kole that is about 3" long, and a baby yellow that is about 1.5" long. The only "aggression" I have is occasionally the Kole will "kick" the Yellow - mainly out of the Kole's cave, but other than that the Yellow follows the Kole around like a little brother.

I also know that I'll either have to get rid of the yellow, or upgrade (first choice) when the yellow gets a bit bigger.

Thanks for the comments guys. I think I will go with the yellow tang, a real small one and then when I get the 125 I will reconsider another tang thats compatible.
