How long do u think it would take? If it was less than half a year than it doesn't seem worth it....

I wouldnt put a yellow tang in for any more than 3-5 months. it does depend on how big you get him at but he will grow from tiny to medium rather quickly. Is your tank 3 feet or 4 feet? That could be improtant....

They grow about a an inch and a half to a couple of inches a year I believe... If u really love tangs try to get a bigger tank. A 60 or 75 if u just want one tang, and then u don't have to worry about giving it away. Lol
