Hey Melosu... How about a 45Gal (3feet long tank) for a Kole Tang? I was at my LFS store this weekend and they had a little Kole. Of course, the salesman said it would be VERY happy in my tank.. But, I kept hearing all the voices behind my computer screen (you Guys) telling me it was a mistake! So, I left with nothing.

Out of all the fish in the hobby, that one is my Favorite.. But if I shouldn't, I wont..

I think you made the right decision. That is a little small for a tang, even a Kole Tang. IMO you need at least a 4' 55-gallon for the Kole, but probably no other tang
