I have a question for you: Why do you think this guy should only keep one Tang in an 8' 180 tank? What rule are you following here?

What happened to the all important water issues? Calcium, Salinity, Alkalinity, Magnesium?

I said he shouldn`t keep two different types of tangs not only one tang.

And I posted this fast so thanks for pointing that out, I will fix it soon.

Absolutely not. You should never keep the same Tang in a tank this small. They will kill each other, especially the PBT, they are territorial about their Algae areas. THey should only be kept in groups in very large systems.
And in my opinion, I have a 8' tank, and have many Tangs, none of which are of the same type.
Vlamingi, Sailfin, Blue Hippo, Scopus, Tennent, Mimic, Yellow Eye Kole. I don't think you have enough knowledge about SW fish to advise anyone on stocking lists. JMO though.

Why are you hatin.8-)

I have had people ask me this question before and I gave them this same info and it turned out fine.

I really don't think it turned out well. And bad advice kills fish. This hobby cost enough to begin with, without having someone who doens't know what they are doing giving bad advice and costing more.
