I was on the edge with the cardinals but my b/f went with me today for the first time and he actually took an interest in the fish. So i figure i'll get 2 for him to enjoy.

Not sure if this is the thread to ask in, but, How long does it take a tang to get too big for a 55g? i figure I'll be upgrading again within 6 months, would they grow that fast? Especially if I get a small one?

I guess everyone will say wait for the tank but I'd really like to enjoy it now as well as later.....

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

Yah haha my bf HATES my fish...always jokes about eating them, says i spend too much time with them haha. I have made it clear that i come as a package though...fish and me together.

I think you should be fine if you get a really small one. I mean it's not like it would be cramped in a 10 gal, 55 should be fine for temporary home.

I noticed that! Carey I'm soooo glad you finally get the tang you've wanted, unfortunately (to be selfish) I'm ten gallons short and one year short of the small temporary tank mark

I'm still getting input. What i'd like is maybe an alternative to the yellow tang so I can get one now. But I'm feeling out how long it will take til the yellow one to grow out of the 55g. If I'm good for a year on his size i can be certain that I'd have a 125g by then. Heck, I may even have it by the summer but worst case scenario is christmas.

Yellow-eyed Kole tang and a tomini tang are good for smaller tanks, for me I'd prefer the depth on a 75G to feel safer.

I'm just skeptical about putting any tang in a 55, the room just isn't there
