Well I dont think its becuase they haven't tried. Everything animal is different. I mean, they can breed killer whales but cant even keep a great white alive in captivity.

I have a yellow tang and a blue tang together in my 72 gal. The yellow is very calm and moves slowly around the tank but my blue tang is super active and really needs more room. That's why I see a 220 gal in my near future. That reminds me, I will be selling a sofa soon. Lol

The kole will be fine in a 75g and I have a yellow in my 150g and he really doesnt move that much. I mean he swims but very slowly. So does my naso. My yellow right now would be fine in a 75g but Im not sure about when hes full grown. It really depends on the rockwork too.

This site isnt about bashing, it's about information. You already know the tank is too small so you know you'll have to either upgrade soon or trade him in. I won't belabor the point.

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