about the whole 'if your fish is stressed it will get ich and die thing', ich doesn't just come out of thin air. unless it's introduced to your tank somehow, it doesn't matter how stressed your fish are, they won't get ich. they'll definitely die from sort of stress related illness, but unless it's dormant in your system, not ich.

Like I said earlier, in these fishes case it isn't about how many gallons they need or anything about it. In the wild these fish are swimming freely in the open water column constantly, they need room to swim.

i would say ich lays dormant in at least 80% of our tanks and if it doesnt already chances are it willwhen you add the tang from the fish store..

gallons does matter, but when it comes to swimming room, it sorta doesn't. You can have a 110+ gallon that is 3 feet wide, 1 feet deep, and 5 feet high, but that wouldn't be enough horizontal swimming area for a tang.

You can put a small tang in a 20g and it'll live for a short time but what matters is that it wouldn't be happy and will stress the fish out. Some tangs will SURVIVE in a small tank, but that might just be a strong fish, doesn't mean it'll always work out.

Everyone has been giving you special needs. 6' wide established tank.

Wow dude! Chill! If you don't want to hear an honest answer, why are you on here in the first place? They won't have to kill each other...you'll do it for them if you ignore all sorts of good advice from many of the most experienced aquarists on here.
