All fishkeeping is technically creul, depending on your ethical stand point.

If you still want to try it, let us know how it is in five years and see if the fish is still living.
Tomini tang can do in a 55g since it maxes out at 6".

You're right. It grows to be 48" and is not suited for home aquaria.

Unfortunately we would need really large tank to make fish happy lol a 6 foot tank probably feels like a cage to a tang as well I mean what right do we have to say what fish belong in what size tank there living creatures they want freedom and space lol were all cruel ppl

According to liveaquaria (not the bible, but generally a good guideline) it has a minimum tank size of 70 G.
