Yeah. Just looked em up. It's cool to see how little they are and how their stripes change from vertical to horizontal. I just can't wait for mine to get to a foot long! So cool

Mine is about an inch and a half maybe a tad more. I have it in my 20g for now but anticipate it being moved to the 125g when it gets bigger. Mine has grown by at least double since I got him so they are fast growers.

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

Yes! They do grow fast! Mine was about 4 inches when I got him and now is about 5-6 inches!

Mines every bit of 10" if not more. He's a biggun . He's got an insane Camo look to him. Best part is to look underneath at the bottom glass and watch his tunnels

Are they hardy and do they eat well? Are they aggressive? If they meet the criteria, maybe I will get one or two for my 125g. Thanks!

Mine eats like a champ and made it thru my ick really well. They aren't aggressive IMO. They just like to hang out in the caves and pop their heads out once in a while. Kinda like eels

I agree 100% with sardina... they really do mind their own business for the most part.. only part you have to watch for is they LOVE to dig tunnels and caves... so be ready to have your sand completely rearranged.. when I setup my tank, I flattened out the sand before I went to bed, the next morning there wasnt a level spot in the tank! He moved it all
