Thats a big fish, even for a 375. Not sure how long they take to reach full size though. My guess is your tangs will beat up on him at first but things should settle down.

I try to avoid fish that will outgrow my tank, as they are hard to remove and I'd get attached to them.

I agree, just looking for information about them, does not seem to be alot. Many site show a few different pictures and sizes for them.

I had one that grew HUGE...in a 210. He was friends with my unicorn tang and vlamingii tang - got them all at small sizes...but he was a ba$tard towards ME! Whenever my arm was in the tank, moving a coral, gluing a coral, cleaning the glass etc...he'd bite me! And when I say bite rather than nip, it's because I MEAN bite. I'd bleed and everything. I'm telling ya, he got big fast. What a punk he was. lol

For a frame of reference, that gigas clam was at least 15 inches at THAT time. It's more in the 17" range now.
