Quarantine Question

I've always quaranteened my fish (Well, when feasible at least) and have reaped the benifits from this well enough to know I durn will will continue too. However, I've stuck to either fresh water or small salt water fish till now.

However, I'm looking at starting a much larger tank (Something with tangs actually being feasible!) and I realized I don't know if a tang can be quarunteened in a ten gallon (What I've currently got to use for that) or if I need to track down a twenty or more along with the rest of this project. Could someone perhaps express their thoughts?

I keep forgetting that trick. Course the question of how big stands, but makes solving the issue easier. Thanks for the reminder!

I would get as long of a tank as possible for a tang quarantine. Depending on the size of the fish you purchase. They tend to be active swimmers and the more length they have, the less stress they will feel.

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