I just keep wondering what drives one to ask if its OK to do such and such. When told no, by a few folks and related links Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Reef Aquariums: Powder Blue Tang [/QUOTE] or this one Surgeonfish: Tang Fish, Yellow Tangs and other Surgeons

...then they do it anyway. What were you looking for when you asked? Seriously, I'm dying to know what the thinking is. Not being harsh or rude by a long shot. I'm really wondering.

i guess you are aware that they didn't tell you the truth. the shape of the front pane doesn't have anything to do with whether a fish will be ok in it or not. in some cases, or i might even say MANY cases, the LFS will say whatever they can in order to make their rent.
if you were to purchase that fish at about 1.5"-2", you would have to find a home for it before it reached 4". these fish don't do well physically, in confined quarters.
once your tank is established, and all of your rock and livestock, and maybe corals are growing and they look good, it's a major traumatic situation for the inhabitants, and you, to have to catch and remove a fish.
you are better off finding a fish that is suitable for your tank.
