Smile Question about Regal Tangs

Hi there, I am from England and I am looking into buying a regal tang.
At my local aquatic store they tell me my tank is possibly too small for one.
The problem is ive tried researching this on the internet and all I can find is American gallons answer. I dont really understand the measurements of that.

I have a 90 Litre tank with live rock and was just looking for a simple answer....
Is my tank big enough?

Not even close

Regal ( hippo) gets big maybe 30cm

And tangs need lots of room to swim or they will be stressed get sick and die.

You need 500 liters to even think about it

They have unit conversion calculators all over online.. you just have to look for one. But generally its about 4 liters per gallon.

I agree. Your tank is way too small for any type of tang.
