blue tang question

Hi I'll being geting 150 gallon or 180 gallon and was wondering if I could keep a blue tang in 150 even though on the website it says 180 minmum only because I was going to get a good deal on a 150 gallon

a 72" 150 or a 48"

eithere way with a 72" they are still 30 inches tall and only 18" front to back which doesn't leave much space for a full grown blue tang to turn, especially when there is alot of rock

It would be 6 ft so it's better to go with the 180? then even though I could get a better deal with the 150

I think a 6 foot tank would be better for more reasons than just the tang. It will benefit all your fish and gives you alot of room for rock and other cool stuff.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
