    Saltwater? Freshwater? forgive my ignorance, I'm not sure what kind of fish your talking about.
    If your talking about saltwater Yellow Tang the reccomendation I found was for 50Gallons of water.
    hope that helps.

    Hi,

    I have a yellow tang. They get way too big for a 10 gallon tank and they need swimming room, so a 55 gallon minimum is recommended.  They are especially susceptible to saltwater ich, so you'll definitely have to quarantine for a few weeks before introducing in to the main tank.  They also need highly oxygenated water, either thru airstones or high surface agitation with power heads.

    More info:

    If I recall the movie correctly, I think that Dory from the Nemo movie is a hippo tang... Not sure though

    Yellow Tangs are one of my favorite saltwater fish - they are really beautiful and fun to keep.
