According to "Marine Fish" by Scott W. Michael

Atlantic Blue Tangs
Kole Tangs
Yellow Tangs
Scopas Tangs

Can all work there are a few others but they IME wouldn't be good choices

el diablo, thanks for the link. the information helps me a lot with my decision.

moorish... i see you recommend Kole tangs. we have a lot of those in hawaii. i think i will try to catch one myself. believe or not, a lot of us native hawaiians eat kole tangs. ok, mine will just be a pet!

Lots of places seem to suggest that a Yellow Tang is fine in a 55.. Official websites.. LFS.. shops.. other owners.. people on forums..

Why wouldn't it be OK? I ask out of curiosity, and also the fact that I'm currently keeping one in a 55...

I don't know this for fact, but my guess would be turn around room when they attain adult size.

A tang would do pretty good in a 55.I had a few tangs in a 55 and they did great.I put them in my 110 and they are doing great.I have a Purple Tang,a Yellow Tang,a Hippo Tang,and a Light Brown Tang.
