Tangs in a 125g?

I just may have hit paydirt on CL. I found a five foot 125g tank and stand that I'm interested in for $100.

Is five feet good enough for yellow tangs? I know it's best to have the 6ft of swim space but was wondering if this will work.

Tang Police help me out! What should I do?

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

I think you`ll be OK with a yellow tang. I`m pretty sure you would be OK with a yellow eyed Kole tang also with the yellow tang.
