Yep, it's on my list. It's a maybe fish though so we will see. Most of the fish I have picked out for this tank will be quite small and stay kinda small too. I'm thinking it would be ok not being in the 125g. I think the tank size recommended is because of the adult size not the swim room as it is with tangs.

Says it needs plenty of swimming room in the description.. I know LA isn't the final truth, but I know how you feel about ur fish too... I'll look other places and see what they say too...

the internet is full of contradiction!!!

yellow or blue tang that only needs 50gallon tanks.
vs
125 minimum from liveaquaria.

like you said not the final truth.

I looked at two websites, which said 55 gallon and 50 gallon (which confused me because I though that would be WAY to small)

In the book Marine Fishes by Scott W. Michael it says the Harlequin Tusk will need a 55g tank.

See... Why I'm lost too... Where and who is the final word when it comes to these tank sizes?
