    you know if you get it young and it grows up in the 55, I don't think you would have a problem keeping him in it.

    IMO no. They are a smaller tang. IMO, if you get it small and its grows up in the tank and is used to it, I think it would do just fine.

    Well thank u I'm excited to do more research into it then and make sure it will do fine with the other 2 fish I plan on adding. And hopefully find more out about its care and everything so that it can be a super happy easy transition for it. Thank u again.

    It is very good that you are researching the fish and its compatibility with others. And that you care about its well being. If you take good care of it, I think it will be happy in the 55. Besides, like most of us, you will upgrade to a larger tank soon enough.

    Agree with Lorrie, a Kole, Tomini and Yellow Tang would all be fine if gotten small for a 55g long term. The only issue I see is, in my experience Kole and Yellow Tangs are a bit bullish on new arrivals once they have established territorial ownership of tank. I just recently introduced a Flame Angel into my 125g and of the 20 fish in there only the Kole tried to show her where she ranked in the Pecking Order. 3-4 days of scrapping and all is well again.

    Cheers, Todd
