Tangs in a 120g

Can I put tangs or triggers in a 4' 120gal tank? I keep reading you should have a 6' 125gal tank, but I was wondering if I could create a rock mountain in the middle of the tank so there would be room to swim all the way around the outsides of the tank. I don't want to put anything in an enviroment that would cause any undue stress. I haven't bought the bigger tank yet, just wanting to know if its a possibility. I do not have any plans for a reef tank at this time and I'm not sure a 6' tank would fit in my place.

Just getting started and already talking about going bigger!!

I`m sure there are some that would do OK. A yellow should do OK and most of your bristle tooth tangs should do OK.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

Like mike said there are a few that would do all right but they would be happier in a 6'. If you really have your heart set on tangs i would try to make the 6' tank happen. Less likely they will get stressed or sick.

In a 4 foot tank most of the smaller tangs like yellow, koles, purples will do fine if housed as a single specimen.
