Blue hippo tang question

What's everyones opinion on having a 1 inch blue hippo tang in a 30 gallon aquarium? Obviously he's going to grow out of it and i plan on getting a 100-125 gallon soon. How quickly do they grow? I only have a clown, 6 line wrasse, yellow watchman goby and 1 blue damsel.

Well if you are getting the bigger tank soon, then why cant you wait to purchase the tang? Moving it from tank to tank will just cause unecessary stress

Lol if i were you id skip the sale and buy a bigger blue tang in a few months when the new tank is set up. Trust me, larger fish tend to fare better in aquariums then smaller fish do.
