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

I know you guys had mentioned that putting a tang in a 55g isn't a good idea but last week I went to a fish store and saw a hippo tang a little more than an inch long. Would that still not be good for my tank?
I found a 100 gallon on craigslist that I want to go see this weekend. This is the description on the ad "Beautiful 100 gallon salt water aquarium with all fish, 1 large blue hippo tang, 1 medium yellow tang, 1 large pather grouper, 1 large zebra eel 3 1/2 ft., clow, all the rocks, lights everthing included you move"

Unfortunately, I would still say no. It will grow quicker than you think, and you may not have a tank for it yet. Unfortunately, I bought a 55g tank that came with a Blue Hippo, and now I am upset because I feel like I am stunting it's growth. I am working on upgrading, but I can't find a tank on CL.

A few things to get information on before you actually go check it out the type of light, filter and any powerheads. If it has a sump ask if the tank is drilled. Check out the rocks for pests. I saw a tank for sale on craigslist that boasted anemones and yes it had anemones it looked like a aiptasia ranch. About the grouper it will need a 300 gallon tank. Check for scratches on the tank that can be a bargaining chip.
