I would guess it is because they like to swim. They're like darts and like a good straight away. That's why I was saying that mine would like a 6' tank, just for the extra length. Maybe if you have a baby they'll never get beyond X (whatever that is) but if you get an adolescent it already has a growth curve established and it may grow bigger? Dunno. My yellow has gotten pretty big, but doesn't seem to be getting as big as fast now. Maybe the same thing will happen with my yellow.

Try taking a 2 liter bottle, cutting off the top and leaving it in your tank..put some flake food in there for the next few days. Keep your net handy and just cover the opening when the tang is in there.
Be ocean minded, keep our beaches clean.

heres an idea, that someone posted and worked great for them.

if you have a large rock structure in the middle, cut 2 pieces of egg crating so it fits around the rock in the front of it, and behind it. then they raised the crating, and took another piece vertically, and swept it across while liftinf the crating up from the bottom.that way they contained the fish in a small area, and was able to net them very easily.

it seems not too bad, but box trap IF WORKS, would definately be the easiest.

55 gallon Reef now woohoo, slowly but surely
