yea, i have had some experience with that site. I have nothing good to say about them, but I think they have changed owners or something since I last used them. It seems they revamped their website and their policies. Little things like that though still make me not like them.

Anyone that says a tang can go in a 29 gallon tank is not being honest. They are just making a sale. Tangs in too small a tank will have disease and parasites at a higher rate than those in a bigger tank. This was a post from someone I value as very knowledgable in the SW realm. His post about a tang in na smaller tank was spot on. IMO I would not have a tang in a 29 gallon tank.

yellow tang in a 55g

Blue Hippo Tang - Tiny
Tiny is just the size of the fish as caught. a very young Hippo tang. It will still out grow a 30-40g tank.

Fyi.. when they say "tiny" they mean baby, which means it will grow. Just pointing that out since it seems your under the impression its a small tang that will stay small
