Stocking question

I'm pretty sure most people would agree with me that on saying buying a fish with out knowing its care besides what the lfs says is not something you want to do often or at all...I know this is double edge sword because I have a tang in my 55 but I made a point on making sure I know all of its requirements and if that I could meet them. And based what I know about them and my experience and that of others, I can meet those requirements

I don't see what the big deal is here. Op obviously did his research on the fish he wanted( good for you by the way, too few people do this anymore and it's easier than ever) I agree with the others about the LMB being a bad fit with the tang and the fat head being finicky but think you should be fine with an assessor. I'll take some heat off you here, I had a yellow tang in my 40b for 3 years with no problems and he thrived . In my defense it was just the yellow and my hi fin red banded goby and I did 2 wc's a week on that particular system, and I would still have it but a friend with a 250 made me an offer I couldn't refuse. If rather see a fish in a tank a little to small that had pristine water quality than a huge tank with poor water quality. Just my $.02
