Tang for my Tank

is a 90 gal big enough for a Yellow Tang? Tank dimensions are about 48" x 18" x 24". I'm worried it might not be long enough?

I think you would be fine. 4 ft gives him a good amount of room to swim around. What are your other inhabitants?

so far nothing...i'm in the "i wanna get this and i wanna get that and i wanna get this" stage of setting up a new tank

So far I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a pair of clowns (either True Perc's or Ocellaris) and a Blenny (probably a bi-color)

I have a 90G with a Yellow Tang, Ocellaris Clown, and 2 Damsels in it. They are all doing great. Just keep an eye on the Yellow Tang, as it is suceptible to ick more so than other fish. HTH

Really? For a single Tang? It's 4 foot tank, thought that was big enough.

Heck my tank is stocked and I still "wanna get this, wanna get that" .
Of course I won't, but it never ends.

Most of the places I have checked for the Yellow Tang require a 70G minimum, so I thought it would be safe for a 90G.

90 gallon you will be fine. It is not to small. 4 feet gives them alot of room to swim. You will be fine. You should get a Black longnose tang. My favorite. Just can't afford it.
