I agree they are the hardiest and I've had two and never had an ich problem. That doesn't mean it's not a good idea to quarantine. You risk everyone in your tank by not doing so rather it's a tang or not. That said though, it's a beautiful fish and will do fine in a 55g tank. Good luck with your new addition.

I had a small yellow tang in a 29 gallon running a UV sterilizer and he was fine. No problems with ich. Oh and no QT tank either. BUT, I will say this:

I concede and apologize to the Tang Police. After seeing how beautiful this fish is swimming in the new 75 gallon that he's housed in, I understand that it was a mistake to take him on in the 29. He was small when I purchased him but these guys are pigs and grow very quickly.

But anyway, good luck with your yellow tang. It is a great SW fish and should do outstanding in your 55. Stock up on seaweed...

Oh...you're not the only one on the force. BTW I still won't join. The closest I'll get is a Large Tank Advocate...

Oh yeah and I'll still have to submit some photos for proof to the Tang Police that I really did upgrade to the 75 ...

Glad you are enjoying your new "larger tank". I am sure your tang is.

Yeah, thanks. I can't wait to overstock it with a few larger species of tangs. Like one or two of those Nasos and maybe a clown tang, ooooh or a unicorn!
