A lemon peel is similar, but a yellow dwarf angel really looks a lot like a yellow tang. Check out the link I posted above Carey. He could keep one easily.

LOL. that may be, but I sense some tang fever in the op. I have the same disorder, I love them too much not to have one and nothing will do in it's place. It sucks and all but in the end when you upgrade you'll appreciate it. Trust me.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

it can be a bit hit and miss regarding the stress, all fish act differently although tangs are easily stressed.I think as long as you do upgrade you should be ok.
I've had a yellow eyed kole for over a year in a 60 gallon(uk) tank and its doing fine.

I think it might be true that I'll only really be happy with a tang. Oh well, something to look foreword too (if it works out)

Thats the other thing. if it works out. Who knows where you'll be in life in a year? if youre broke then no upgrade. :-( Or if you move etc etc....

It took me almost a year to get my 125g sw, I'm glad I waited. i would have been crushed if something happened to a tang while I was waiting. they are sooo beautiful and graceful....

Can't he keep a tang until it's a certain size? Then either upgrade to a larger tank or give it to someone who can house it or the lfs?

he could. but I don't see the point in getting a fish and then giving it away. especially a tang. It would break my heart. lol

Is your tank at least 4 feet? or is it a 3 footer?

But if I could only keep it for a month I don't want to do that? How long could I keep it for? It's two feet by three feet by one foot
