Blue Hippo Tang?

I am interested in purchasing a blue hippo tang. Since I need to bring the purple tang back to the LFS to a better store since my tank isnt large enough. If I put the blue hippo tang in a 65gallon tank will it be alright or will that also be to small. Because if no blue tang then then tangs will be completley out of the question. Let me know thanx!

65 may be too small eventually. Minimum recommended size for a tang is 75 and larger for some types of tangs. You may be able to get away with it in a 65 if you aren't too overstocked with other fish or taking up too much space with live rock and corals.

Glad to hear you care about what you are doing so many people don't. Your fishes will thank you.
