At the bare minimum, 6ft in length and 2 ft wide. Those tangs get to around 15'' onm average and around 22'' at most. In general, an 8ft long and 3ft wide tank would be ideal. Liveaquaria says 18'', but I would assume some will get larger. If you have a 2ft wide and 6ft long 150, you should be fine for a couple years.

I deleted the other post.

Minimum tank size recommendations are there for a reason.
I wouldn't put one in my 125 as I already think it's too small for my sailfin tang.

The Naso is also listed as a jumper so netting would also be required over the tank.
