thats the reason alot of people put tangs in slammer tanks, when they are small but they will probably quickly outgrow the tank. onw foot long is a very large fish and mostlikley will be 6" high

I have a regal blue tang who is now 6 inches in my 120 gallon and I almost want to get him a 250 gallon. Mine is a 60 inch long tank, i would prefer to have him in a 72 inch, maybe i time. He is fine for now, more than happy, but eventually.

In a 76 gallon you can get a very small yellow tang. But eventually he will outgrow it.
