Hippo tang

Is a 108 gallon big enough for hippo tang? It's a 48 long x 18 wide and 29 high!

It's our next adventure so any advice as to how I should tackle this one is great. FOWLR only or could I do corrals?

i would say its too short, 6' would be good.

you could do either FOWLR or reef but 29" is a pretty deep tank, lighting you may have a bit of trouble with for a reef, but ill leave the real answer to someone who knows

I too would say a 6 ft tank. If you wanted to go with a tang in that size tank I would go with a yellow eyed Kole tang.
