Good job on returning him You should be proud of yourself for caring about fish lives. Maybe your friend will follow your example. Other than that, tell your friend it's live putting a human in a jail cell for life. Sure they'll live, but it's not going to be a very pleasant life. And the tang did nothing to deserve it.

Also, the hippo tang would grow larger than the size if a 5gal, not that it would live that long.

For other reason other than curiosity, how long does a hippo take to reach mature size from a small 1"?

Tangs releas a cemical in the water that will stunt its groth. In a smaller tank ther is more cemical witch in ture stresses it out. Bigger tank less cem more groth.
