Qt tank

How big of a quarantine tank should I go with if I will be adding fish like Tangs? Thanks!

I think a 30 gallon is a perfect QT size..,but i use a 20 long now and i think even a 10 will do..I just think we should all do it...
For a tang or 2 a 20 is fine IMO(assuming they are not 7-8+ inches)...Remember ,these fish are usually sitting in an LFS tank for weeks on end too
