This is so very true. I have a 72 gallon tank and both of my tangs have grown like weeds.....to the point that I'm feeling guilty about keeping the hippo tang in particular....he's a moose. My yellow tang isn't far behind him.
I would suggest that you consider trading in/adopting out your tang. There are so many other fish that would be more suitable for your situation and you would be able to get a couple more fish rather than a couple of big ones.
Good luck to you!
