I have had one for about 3 weeks. Just moved to a 90g and moved out other Tangs. So far so good.

Love the fish and plan to make it the center of my tank. System was about two years old before I added it. Previously I had a Orange shoulder and a yellow Tang. I found the PBT for a price to good to pass up and jumped on it.

How big? That is about what I have seen them for online. Mine is about 5"+ and I bought it for $33.99 at a petco normally $82.99. I could not believe it especially since the fish seemed very healthy.

I know many trash Petco and I normally do not buy livestock from them , but it was too good a deal. Actually of the fish I still have half of the came from a petco and have done extremely well. I bought my pair of maroon clowns on a similar deal and have had them over a year now.

Good luck with QT.
