I just can't remember off the top of my head your specific size tank
I think the commons idea on tank size seem to be a 120 but I have a 56 collum with a blue tang that's an inch and half if that ..alittle bigger then a damsel

The tang police rise again. Typically and for the best interests of the fish, tangs require ALOT of swimming room. especially the blue one. Just figure you can't keep the tangs in there together forever.

When I watched my tangs when I had 3, I was amazed at how much tank room they really like. The Kole tang which is supposed to be ok in a 75g was the most active tang racing back and forth all day. When I watch my yellow tang now I am thanlful I didn't throw one in my 55g like I had wanted to but was stopped by people on this forum. For that I am grateful .

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

Got 60g-65g not sure. I just rearranged the furniture. I think they liked the new arrangement. Did not dispose any LR but it looks more spacious, i like it.

I have a 120 i've been testing to see if it holds water so far so good just going to clean it once again and let it sit dry then will move everything over once it cycles ..if it wasn't for the 120 I wouldn't have boughtthe tang...
