From what Ive read I see varying recommendations for minimum tank size for a yellow tang.. As small as a 55 gal up to some saying minimum size is 180 Gal... From most sites I feel the 4ft long thing is the guideline so they have some good swimming room..

Do yourself a favor and spend 10-15 minutes watching a yellow tang at your lfs, they are very active swimmers.. I personally wouldn't put them in anything smaller than a 6 footer.....but that's me

It's not always the length though. It's the width also a 55 for a yellow is a terrible because the tang can't turn around easily.

I have a predator/aggressive set-up ,,going on 5 years now... Humu-humu trigger,Clown trigger,purple tang,Maroon clown and a Koran angel in a 125 (72x18)...i personally can't wait to upgrade to an 8 maybe even 10 footer,,and will be doing so in a years time...
I am new here on this site but not to the SW forum world,,the debate of YT's in 55's to 75 to 90 has made my head spin...Personally i had one in a 90 for a couple years then traded him for my beloved angel when i upgraded to the 125...i do think the OP's fish list is border line for a 90 but not because of the tang...Mostly the angel(unless its a dwarf),,,mine is the meanest SOB in the tank and he lets everyone know about it...Not sure how one would be in a 90

If I did get an angel it would be a flame angel or a coral beauty.. Not sure if I want to chance it with a lionfish although I think it would be large enough not to become dinner..
