Depending on what you add I think a kole in a 40b is fine. IMHO the footprint of a 40b is better than a standard 55 and with your scape it's got lots of swimming room and hiding places. Wish I was right though , I do love those flashers

I can see why red thinks a kole would work in a 40b , My hamlet is about the size of a full grown kole and seems content . they also only require 30g , but he is also a lot more relaxed and not as active , The foot print of a 40b would work for the fish size but I would have to rethink it as how active a tang can be , Just looking at my scopas tang and he is only 2 inches , with the rounds he does in my 90g confirms that a 40 is cutting it close ,

Early on I think it would be OK. The tomini I have in my 55 continues to be in good shape and look great. Very active fish with an active fear of anyone who approaches the tank. The key, besides swimming room, is the fresh algae to eat to help lower aggression and calm the nerves.

I got lots of film algae going on for him . The scape is super open as well for him. I think he'll be ok for a while and like I said I definitely have a plan for him if I'm not in a bigger tank by the time he needs one

Get some algae strips or nori and rubber band it to a rock. That will have its interest. I don't think it'll care about the film algae.

I read they really like the film algae but I'll definitely pick up some nori tomorrow from pacificeastaquaculture. He is literally impossible to get a pic of lol. But he is being a lot less shy today. Hopefully he keeps getting bolder.
