Tangs for a 110

I know most tangs require a longer tank, approx. 6 feet i believe? I was curious if there was a tang possible to keep in a 110? If not other fish ideas are welcome

Yes, smaller tangs like Kole Tangs and Tomini Tangs can be kept in that sized tank. I believe that Bristletooth can be also.

That is a difficult question, lol. Some will says yes, and some will say no. For example, I have heard people say that a Yellow requires a 90g, while others say that they need a 125g.

I do like the yellows, that was my first want as a tang. I'll have to look for the smaller ones my area doesnt get a great variety. I've heard a few arguments over the tank size, i feel a yellow can live in a 4 foot long tank

I have read that yellow tangs can be in a 110 G, but it is a minimum tank size for them.

If this is a 110 XH, the footprint is the same as a 75 or 90... I would be inclined to follow the generally accepted guidelines for stocking smaller tangs in those tanks. JMO.

If it is a 110 XH, that's a 2 foot difference in length. Pretty big difference IMO.
