i would think that a blue tang should still do well in a 125. if you look at all aspects the main differnce between a tall 180 and a 125is the height, they both are 72"x18" just one is 22" tall while the other is 30". with you go with a standard 180 that is 72"x24"x24" its 6" deeper and 2" taller the swimmign space is more or less the length not really the depth or height

i am talkign abotu a hippo though, the allowable space for it to swim is more or less the same in a 180 or a 125 only thing is you can get 125 in 48" or 60" as well as 72". a48" or 60" really don't have the space for a 12" long adult blue tang needs to swim were as a 72" long has ample froom for dashed swimming before it is forced to turn

I was thinking the same thing. Lol. But I think all three and schooling fish might be too much. I'll have to do some more research into the lo

I wouldn't house a hippo in a 120 because when full grown it could barely turn around in the 120, that is where the 180 would be advantageous.
