Atlantic Blue Tang?

So while i was getting my new fish today I was talking to the fish guy. He recommended the above fish instead of a yellow tang and that my 55 would be sufficient.

I was looking for a kole tang but they didnt have any.

Anyone have any experience with these fish?

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

Just face the facts, time to turn the 125 into the reef lol!! Your freshwater fish could suffer for just a little longer

aww man i thought I had a good one. LOL I guess I'll keep searching. :-(

I can't upgrade the sw for a few months, I just did one this week.

I have some cichlids that will need the growing room so the 125 is theirs. i already painted the back black too.

Your 55 is to small for a yellow tang as well
