Interesting way to keep Tangs?

I went to the Houston Downtown Aquarium a few weeks ago. There was a tank that shaped like a cylinder. Its diamteter is only about 20 in. In there they keep a Percula clown and a Regal Tang. What's cool is the tang never runs out of swimming space. It keeps swiming round and round b/c of the shape of the tank lol. I asked a guy at the place about tangs keeping and he said that tangs do require lots of swimming space but if space is limited, strong flow can be subtituted 0.o

Comment?

EDITED: I just looked online right now and found this http://www.whozoo.org/Anlife99/loriwood/tang3.htm
Interesting isn't it

I question his article.. the one part that jumps out at me is him being able to tell the difference in sexes and commenting that the Male moves more... Never ever heard of anyone being able to sex a yellow tang.

Here's you expert.. Some College student doing some write on something at the zoo.
Probably worked there one semester and was a "expert" on yellow tangs.
