    Tank size question

    Hi everyone, It's a fairly straightforward question I have, I want to keep: yellow tang, blue hippo tang, naso tang and maybe a powder brown tang.
    Would a 4 foot 120G be enough or better longer?

    I have a 4 foot 120 with a yellow and hippo tang. Let me tell you, the tank is too small. Wish I had a 6' foot long 180.

    I wouldn't put than many tangs in a tank. Maybe two smaller ones in a 90 (yellow and blue hippo) but not more than that because they will outgrow the tank in 2-3 years. Tangs also need a lot of swimming room so 6 feet would even be better but that's if you have room for it. I love tangs as well but some are fairly agressive toward other tangs so IMO 2 would be plenty.

    I have a blue hippo and a yellow tang in my 75, and I think they are ok in there for now but in a year or 2 they'll have to go in a bigger tank. I would'nt put more then 2 tangs in a 120 4foot and in the 6 foot but I would buy the 6 foot
