tangs for 55?

are there any tangs that do well in a 55 gallon tank? i'm just trying to figure out what i wanna get when my tank is done cycling. are blue tangs too big? i thought i saw 75 gallons for them, but idk...
any other suggestions would be good too
thanks

oh, and i've got 28 lbs of base rock right now...to be getting some live soon hopefully

thanks

A 55 gal is too small for a blue tang since they grow to around 10+ā€. IMO If wanting one tang Iā€™d stick with a yellow, Kole, Bristletooth, or Mimic Tang which all are less than or at 8ā€ at adult length.

Also keep in mind that since these fish still get pretty large you will be limited in how many additional fish you can add in the 55 gal sticking around 12"-14" of adult fish total.
