I disagree. Maybe if it was a small yellow tang but a full grown yellow tang is like a dinner plate trying to maneuver in a 4ft tank. My 210 has a nearly full grown yellow tang in it and it looks too small for him when it gets active and excited. He will be traded for another smaller fish soon because Im afraid he will stress. I've had him for 2 years.

Do what you want I'm just saying its foolish to put a yellow In a 4ft tank and be prepared to QT everything when the fish's stress cause an ich outbreak or something worse.

But what info or experience do you have to back that up? If we are going by thw same logic then a kole tang pr bristletooth tang isnt suitable for either. Liveaquaria doesnt base their minimum tabk size off of "oh whats the smallest tank size this fish can suffer in without dying". They base it off their knowledge of the fishes swimming hanits and full grown sizs. Minimum tank sizes are what they feel the fish can live in comfortably.... Not suffer through.

I have plenty of experience to back that up. It's simple....stick your dinner plate in a 4ft tank and tell me how that looks to be comfortable for a yellow tang. A tomini is a different shape all together and only reaches 5-6" so they can easily go between and under rocks and other obstacles a full grown yellow can usually only swim in open water and a tank smaller than 6 foot doesn't offer much open water once rocks and equipment are put in.
