Nice yellow tang. I heard somewhere that if they're in a tank less than 12' their insides grow until they literally explode & risk breaking the glass.

Is your tank viewable on the sides? If not, I would build up one corner vertically and create a small back to front slope and left to right slope. Picture a L if you were to look down at the tank.

Maybe it was the tang police warning all to stray away from "abusing" them . I've always heard it to be no less than a 6 foot tank and their body stops growing at a certain point when the tank is too small, but their organs don't. So they slowly die because their organs are compressing. An awful way to die...

A 16" tank could be a 10 gallon...That would be horrific...

This is way off topic, but I will say this: there is no scientific evidence anywhere relating to anything about tangs in captivity. It is all myth propagated by the Internet.
