I know where you are heading to that question and yes it's not a 6' tank. But before you even say anything, I would like to tell you this. We know that tang has thin protective coat and once stressed it is the most susceptible fish to get ich. When they get sick we treat them on a 10 gal
tank by either medication or hypo salinity. Either way doesn't it tells you that they can live, survive and get better in a 10 gal
tank? So why would anyone say it will not make it in a 60 gal
tank? The important thing is, you don't get the fish stressed and you don't import parasites into your tank. Avoid over stocking and If you know what steps to take when they get sick then I would say go for it. I have very minimal livestock as you can see on page 8 video.
