I had a Valentini Puffer with two clowns and he did great. Minded his own business and no other fish bothered him. Great fish. Very vibrant colors.

What size tank are you aiming for? And when? That blue tang really needs his 6 feet of swim room they can get pretty large.
I really don't have a true limit. Its about what the fish I want need. This will be a long process. I will probably just stalk CL till I find a perfect deal that's close and then put it in the garage and build it up slowly.

120g is 4ft long. That's usually the case when you're living in the states.

Patience is rewarding ,,CL is a gold mine for used aquaria .Especially if you don't mind driving a little ways..I got a 125 brand new a few years ago ,drove 3 hours to get it.. just last year i got a 280 ,drove about 2 hours to get it...I say hold out and go big..If you want those fish for life your gonna need a very large tank,do it in one shot so your not upgrading when your tang and puffer is a foot +..JMO...

Very Good advice! The tank is 72 long but idk..it will sit in my garage for quite a while if I do it now but it is only 200 so idk. I'm gonna keep thinking cuz I may be able to skip the tang but I really do love them!

All i know is most of us are never truly satisfied We always want a bigger tank...Especially if theres really no limit ,like you said..
When i got my 125 i swore it was my last upgraded ,now i have a 280..
I'm already visioning my next one ..Its a sickness i tell ya,plus having a very understanding spouse goes a long way..

Hehe he thinks I'm a bit crazy but won't tell me no he is kinda happy I have things I like to occupy my time with like he does for his motorcycle and dirt bike lol.

What size tank do you recommend for a full grown tang. I really love them and I do want the extra room just in case I fall in love! I'm sure you know how that goes! Lol

Hmm,,well the blue/regal can get huge ,,one of the biggest next to the naso's and they tend to grow fast..I never owned one but have seen a buddies grow almost overnight ...I wouldn't go under 180 gallons simply because of the width ..a 125 is 6 feet long but only 18 inches wide ..a 180 gives you a 6 x 2 footprint..doesn't seem like much but once its filled with rock its a big difference ...I bet you'll be able to find something even bigger, 250 + would be my starting point ,especially if you want a puffer too.. Are you near any bigger cities ..i see your in Florida,,i lived in Jacksonville for a few years ,,nice place
