Important Topics please read before posting

Tactics page, no search required.

It's in there, scroll just a bit.

That page is great for solving multitudes of questions involving Tau. I, as requested by the topic title, read nearly ALL those topics when I first started playing Tau several years ago.

Sadly, no. The 5th equivalent is using the drones on the 'fish to jump in front during the assualt phase.

but you still can't assault through a fish right? If it's blocking the way that is.

Correct.

You can never move closer than 1" to an enemy without assaulting that.

Tank Shocking is certainly possible, but remember there is a chance of losing said tank.

True but it's front armor and unless they have some heavy weapons it's a CC attack, which hit on 6's.

Death or Glory attacks against a tank shocking tank automatically hit.

Fish of Fury is weakened because the targeted troops get a cover save, and because it's very easy to kill the devilfish, which can be worth more than the Fire Warriors it's protecting. In 4th it was very hard to kill the Devilfish.
