Ya ik. It's completely ridiculous. How long do you thing I would be able to keep him? Is there a chance I could keep him for life?

Personally I would say it is already too big for your tank. No, you wouldn't be able to keep it for life, they do in fact reach close to 24" in captivity, and need a much larger tank. What is the foot print of your current 150?

Hate to be a downer...but I dive with these guys. Where many reef fish occupy tiny territories, tangs collect into big schools and fly all over the reef. So it is kind of cruel to keep them in a tiny environment. They need lots of holes to sleep in and fly thru and as much room as you can afford to give them.
