too much for a 29?

I really like the powder brown tangs, and i was wondering if it would be way to large for a 29, i originally planned on getting 2 percs and a six line wrasse, and if i added the powder brown, that would be the 4 fish of the tank, but i have a feeling that a 29 is just not big enough for a tang, am i correct? id liek to have one fairly larger fish as the center point, any suggestions if the powder brown is too big?

Sorry to say you are correct. A tang like this IMO needs a tank 3 times this size.
The 2 percs and a sixline would pretty much max that system out.

I would say only a very small powder brown would be ok, in general as soon as the fish is "medium" sized he will need a larger place to roam. Tangs in the wild have huge areas in the reef that they consider their home and 29 gallons would be too small for the tang.

My recent most favorite fish that I have is the midas blenny. Otherwise is a 39g, the percs may have to be your centerpieces.
