Live aquaria with all due respect wants to sell fish.
IMO you need at least a 75 gallon for a Yellow, most other tangs need at least a 90.
Active fish that need lots of swimming room.

i housed my yellow tang in a 30 gallon for a month while i moved, broke down his original 75gal home, and set up a 125gal in my new home. he was miserable, inactive and shy and his great personality disappeared. that is until i placed him in the 125. He's back the way he was; the Undisputable King of the Tank. the whole move was done ever so slowly with not a single fish loss.
So i guess the point is, tangs shouldnt be housed in an aquarium smaller than 75, imo.
125gal. megaflow. Fish Residents:
Yellow Tang -(Junior), Flame Angel -(Flamey)
Bicolor Blenny -(Butch), Randall Jawfish -(Jaws)
Lawnmower Blenny -(Lenny), Talbot's Damsel -(Dottie), Tomato Clown -(Ketchup)
Nameless fish include, Neon Blenny, Singapore Shrimp Goby, Yellow Tail Damsel, 1 Skunk Cleaner Shrimps, purple pseudochromis.
