Shipping a large regal tang

So I got about a six inch regal tang today. He is sitting in a livestock container with about 13 gallons of water. But he will be in there for the next 18 hours. Should I have any problems with this. The thing I'm worried about is he is fairly large.

just add a battery powered bubbler to keep the water moving and try and maintain a steady temp and it should be fine.

i hope you have atleast a 180g for it

Well I got him home, and he is fine. Un fortunately no I don't have a 180. I have a 130. To be honest I didn't really want to get him. He has been in a 60 gallon in the lfs for about a year now. I felt bad and figured he would be better in a 130 gal rather then the 60 gallon. I am upgrading to a 300 next year. I thnk he is about 8 inches actually, hopefully he is fine till next year.
