I would check liveaquaria.com at their minimum tank size, then how long the fish gets, and make your decision on that.

I believe youre looking at 125g minimum and 180g preferably.

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

I wouldn't put on in less than a 84'' long by 36'' wide. They have the possibilty of reaching 18'' in length. Hard to turn a semi around in a small cul-de-sac.

I know 2 people who had Naso's. 1 had it in a 220 and it outgrew it in 2 yrs, the other was in a 240 and it outgrew that tank too. I would say a min of 300g.
