    Default tang/tank size?

    My friend has a beautiful juvenile(2.5") Unicorn tang that he can no longer keep(being harrased by tankmates).I know tangs need large tanks but do you think it would be alright in my 40 breeder(36"x18" surface area) until it got a little larger where i would then remove him to a larger home?I just dont want him to take it back to the LFS where they keep them in small cubicles with inferior water quality which would probably only lead to its death.

    Should fair well so long as you intend to compensate for his growth with an "upgraded" size of tank.
    There's nowhere else I'ld rather be... unless, of course, you're buying

    thats what i figured,the tank is spacious and currently fishless so i think he would welcome his new environment.
