I was in my LFS yesterday and there was a guy asking if he could put 1 in a red sea max 130.

Unlike most LFS mine actually care about the welfare of the livestock they sell and the boss told him in no uncertain terms if he wants tangs he needs a 6ft tank minimum.

Why don't people research before they buy tanks or fish.

Put a tang in your 55 and it will have ich before it even hits the water.
I agree.

90 gal is still tiny, but at least it isnt a 24!!

Also, could you tell us how you know that the tang is, "happy as can be." ?
It really isnt

Actually, I bought 2 hippos and a school of damsels 2 months ago. IMO, the white spots really bring out the blues

Ah. A 90g makes a lot more sense - still too small, but certainly better than the tiny thing I thought you were talking about.

Now I only think you're moderately irresponsible, rather than incredibly so

I suppose it all depends. Personally I don't put a lot of faith in the "I'll remove it when it gets bigger" scenario, primarily because I've tried to catch fish in my tank before and never been able to (I currently have one firefish beating the [moderator edit] out of another, randomly, and have had zero luck catching either one).

But hey, that's just me, I suppose others have had more success at it. For me, I don't add fish that are going go outlive my tank size.

what he was saying is a 90 gallon cube I am pretty sure. which means 24"x24"x36" (not sure if that's 36" high or long) which in my opinion is too small for tangs. Its not so much gallons they need, but lateral swimming room; that's why most of the time you see tank size for tangs listed in feet and not gallons.
