This is a very large tang that reaches lengths of 2 feet plus, and should really be only kept in very large tanks or public aquariums. Small juveniles can be obtained but they have nowhere near the colors or streamers of the larger adults. They don’t start to color up until they reach about 1 foot or more, and anyone who gets a small one and thinks that they are going to have an adult in time will be greatly disappointed.
