At my last job, we could wear jeans, but couldn't wear t-shirt style tops. I wore a lot of princess seamed blouses, which had to be ironed.
Being a nurse I've never had to wear clothes
Wait?! you mean Nurses go to work Nekkid?
Sorry - I couldn't pass it up.
I think business casual means nice khakis and a nice top, t-shirt or blouse. Khakis can be in tan, navy, black, brown... that kinda thing.
Shoes are usually flats or pumps.
I am of course guessing because I wear teachery clothes everyday - which now seems to consist of jeans, t-shirts and sneakers...
ETA: No, no neekid-ness, jrc

For men, khakis/chinos, collard shirts of some type (including polos).
No tennis shoes.

I think I will wear "dressier" items until I know their definition of Business Casual
That is the best way to go. Look at examples of other people that you know are respected in the office and examples of what the bosses are wearing. The tank top that you saw might have been tolerated but not really what the bosses expected. But if everyone is wearing tank tops including the bosses, then it is ok.
