Regal tang

How big does the regal tang get and how long do they live in perfect conditions?

Thanks in advance

Ive heard that someone has had a regal tang for close to 20 years..

maximum length is estimated at a foot long but most tend to stick to 20-26cm full grown.. correct me if im wrong..!

Wow that must be beautiful to see!!

What is the minimum tank size 75g ?

O and I want to compliment StripesTheEel on that beautiful Eel man I would love one of them.

How old is he and how long have you had him?

Some would say yes some no..
I have one in my 75gal and am wanting to transfer to my 100gal..

I'd say 100gal and at least 5 foot long.. yellows, purples etc would be fine in a 75gal but these guys are skittish and a little psycho..

thanks omega.. i've had him for about 2 years..and he is believed to be about 7-8 years unsure..
