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

I believe you can stunt their growth which isn't a very nice thing to do.

I sooo want a tang in my 4 foot tank...BUT alas it's not meant to be

Why put the fish through the extra stress? If you are planning on upgrading, then it would be best to wait on a fish with the larger requirements. What if something happens to you financially and when the time came to upgrade you couldn't? Then you would have to donate or rehome the fish adding even more stress than just moving tanks. I eventually want a panther grouper, but I am definately waiting for the larger tank even though I plan on getting him as a baby.

Don't know about tangs but I wanted to chime in and say I have a 46 bow front and it's shaping up to be a nice little reef tank
