please post picture. 3 and a half years means your tangs should be full size if not VERY close to it.

making a tank that cannot properly house the fish IMO in unacceptable. this is not success!
its like keeping kittens because they are soo cute but then get rid of them when they are cats.
please realize your keeping live animals that are coming from our worlds over harversted reefs as it is.

To tanks, 6' is nothing. They graze the ocean all day. With one whip of their fins, they can sprint accross the tank in no time at all. I'm sure you've seen this with as many fish you have. When they have the issues of lack of space, then you'll begin to see some changes in the behavior... again this is being general.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

i applaud you on wanting to upgrade for future success, however your comment about mistakes is true but something that could have been avoided from the start. research goes a long way.

You asked the question and you have been given EXTREMELY good advise. Understand the position of the experienced fishkeeper, which is that you are way overstocked.

How else can we help you?
