Tank for a 60 cube?

I always see people with tangs for their 57s, 40s, and also 60 cubes. Does anyone see trouble in keeping one in a 60 cube? (24x24x24)

Yes... They like length to cruise around. A 2" tank barely allows time to get going and they have to slow and turn. Even for smaller bristletooth Tangs, it is going to be stressful.

You can keep a dog in your closet and it will live. It won't be happy though. I really don't want to get another Tang Police war going. Bottom line is any Tang in a 2" tank is going to cause problems in the long run. 6" works...something like a 3" or 4" cube (or at least length x width) could work...2" will cause stress and stress causes health issues eventually.

I understand i was just wondering, i really dont think bad of the tang police, other people hate them for standing up for the fishes own good! I saw a guy at the lfs get a 5" yellow tang and he said he had a 34g and it would be fine but really who decides if a fish is gonna be ok in their tank size when they have no experience with it?

Some people...
