The Atlantic Blue tang only gets to around 9" according to the books I have read. Cool pic, I can't wait for mine to get that nice blue color.
I got mine when it was around 2" and it is now 3.5-4" and is a dull gray/blue. I have had him over a year.

I like this specimen as well. After looking at Fenner's book he mentioned they could get up to 2 feet. It's not to say they would get that big in captivity though. I wish I had a bigger tank for the Atlantic Blue, or the Orange Shoulder Tang.
