Minimum Tank Sizes via Liveaquaria.com :

Juvenile Yellow tang: 100g
kole tang: 70g
regal tang: 70g
porcupine puffer: 90g
niger trigger: 70g

pair of clowns: 30g
damsel: 30g
pearlscale butterfly: other sights say 55-75
striped blenny: 30g
ORANGESHOULDER TANG:125G

so really, you should get most of these fish out and replace them with a better selection of spiceses.

Even a juvenile will not be happy in a 55. Its just to small for that fish. Like people have pointed out before it can be aggressive and as a general rule if you put an aggressive fish in a small space it becomes even more aggressive. I think there would be a very good chance it would beat up your smaller fish (clowns, blenny, damsels) possibly to death. damsels could probably take it since they are aggressive themselves and the clowns are questionable but the blenny would not tolerate being bullied at all. I think even if you took out almost all your fish an orange shoulder still would not be happy. Sorry.

Please dont get an orange shoulder. I really really would love a queen angel fish ( very pretty and huge!) but I'm not going to try and keep one in my 55 gallon, not only would it be cruel, but it would bully the other fish to death. Sometimes you just have to be content with what you have ( hey how many other people can keep a saltwater fish? and wait until you can upgrade to a larger tank, make that your goal and save towards it. You'll save lots of money and heartache, if you do!

Again please research. Rather than 'having to take one out' to begin with. Its important you find out who goes well with what, and how big they will get. Fish get very stressed out if overcroweded and in put in with the wrong tank mates.

Mods should consider merging this with "Tang Info" thread. Same basic premise from the same poster.

Thanks for all the info guys. I decided not to get one. It is a bad choice.
