Swimzebras: The hard fact is, no you should not have a Tang in a small tank. Are you going to find someone to tell you they've done it before, and give you an OK, maybe. But the sad fact is they need a lot of swimming room, and even smaller ones will be stressed. I too have a 3' tank and would like to have one. Does your tank have any livestock in it right now? I believe you were looking to house a garden eel or something like that in it. That said there are a lot of other cool fish you can get until you're able to upgrade. I don't have to worry about parental permission, but my wife has been good so far with 3 SW tanks in the house. I'd like my 125G, but not ready to push that issue yet :p

He couldn't house any tang besides a kole eye or bristle tooth in a 75 for life. All other tangs need at least a 120 to thrive. If it is yellow tangs that he really wants, then I would advise saving for a 120 and you could keep one-three yellow tangs easily.

There are still plenty of interesting fish you can keep in, check out liveaquaria or saltwaterfish.com and look around. Take a look and see if you like anything else and feel free to ask anyone about their experiences with them.

Ur right, I have seen them live good in 75's but a 120 would be awesome. Nice again it would come down to different experiences, and again it might stress the fish out. Just trying to give the kid some hope about his dream tang...
