You sure he didn't die of being obys? Mine is in close watch. May upgrade to 6' footprint soon.

My yellow, blue and tomini tangs were really small when I got them, the bkue being about the size of a half dollar. It took about a year or two tops and they grew like monsters. lol
The yellow was about 5 inches i'd say when he passed and ther blue is now bigger than that and soo fat. lol All my fish are fat, it makes me feel good, but on the other hand it makes me worry that they are too fat.

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