I only say caution with a yellow or blue tang because of their activity. There are some tangs that can do just fine in a 75g.

The smaller tank can stress the tang and cause all sorts of issues. Just passing on what I have learned here. I wanted one sooo bad in my four foot tank but I knew I couldnt do that to the fish, I would feel horrible if something had happened.

There are other ways to eliminate algae that are better suited to your tank.

If you are planning on upgrading within a month or two I don't think it would be an issue if you get a small one but if youre looking at next year there could be problems.

Since the tang police has been off lately I have to share what I know. Stress is your biggest worry.

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

From what I understand, tangs are a bit prone to diseases more than usual. If you were to put a tang in a small tank, the stress would prob make the tang even more prone to disease lots n lots of horizontal swim room and the lil torpedoes are happy

i get that i do, but then why do the lfs keep them in 24" square reef tanks? the ones they keep in those tanks are not for sale because they where put in it to help control what ever i forgot what.

the guy does know his stuff and not just some punk off the streets working for minimum wage.

Kole tangs would work, as well as tomini's and the various bristletooth ones. There may be a few others.

Why not go with a lemonpeel angel? They look exactly like a yellow tang.
Thats what I was gonna do

in all honesty, id say its a mistake on his part, they arejust uber-active swimmers, and although the tangs may be alive, who knows how stressed or healthy they are not saying that he doesnt know what hes doing, but everyone makes mistakes now and again in this hobbyand when researching on liveaquaria, take into account their adult size and true swimming stye. iz noticed that they can be a lil generous sometimes with minimum sizes.
