    .....your perceptions on tank sizes for surgeonfish?

    Why do you have the perceptions you do?

    Do you base your tank size suggestions based on personal experience or do you take a more generalised approach, based on popular knowledge?

    What effects do you think that placing a large fish, into a small environment, has on the fish's growth and health?

    I've only ever owned a Yellow Tang and speaking from experience, I wouldn't put a Yellow Tang in anything less than 100gals. I had mine in a 60gal tank and as she grew, the more aggressive she got. Since I've put her in the 180 gal tank she's been fine.

    My Blonde Naso is in my 155. I only have 5 fish in the tank,but none of them are full grown. Everyone gets along,and quite happy so far. And I will add no more fish to this setup because of the size of the fish when they are full grown. I have 1 GrayAngel,1 Porkfish,1 Bluechin Trigger,1 Blonde Naso,and 1 Saddle Wrasse.[​IMG]
