See, that is what I don't understand. I have talked to MANY people and not just LFS
that say 125 gallon is fine for the Blue Hippo Tang, while a lot of websites say a 75 gallon is the Minimal tank size. Than you come on here and a lot of people will say 180 gallon (LiveAquari.com, is the only website that says 180 gallon minimal) is what you need. So why so much confusion on what this Tang needs? I for one will like to get a Blue Hippo Tang some day. My next tank will be a 90 gallon tank (I am working on a 29 gallon tank now). I would love to keep a Blue Hippo Tang, but with all the tank sizes being thrown around I don't know what to believe.
Needless to say PETCO website says minimal tank size is a 55 gallon. LoL
Also, wouldn't a 125 gallon be the same as a 180 gallon for the Blue Hippo Tang due to it being 72in across? Don't they just need a 6 foot horizontal swim?
