I have a 50 Gal saltwater aquarium with two clownfish and a small damsel fish. I was hoping to get either a Blue or Yellow Tang but I don’t know much about tangs or how large they will grow. Is 50 gallons big enough for this fish? Petco sells small blue tangs, roughly 1.5-2 inches in size, but if the fish will grow to be 8 inches or bigger like I’ve been reading I assume my tank will be way to small. Any thoughts? Also, in terms of size and temperament, do you think a blue or yellow tang would be best for my other fish? I might like to get a few more smaller fish in the near future as well. Thanks in advance!

Such a beautiful fish but it so hard to take care of. My friend had one and his died. It might have been a sick before he put it into his tank. He did buy the fish from a bad store. I recommend getting your fish from a good fish store because it can get your other fish sick if you introduce one that is sick
