None. You can barely scrape by with a Kole tang. I wouldn't add any other tangs.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Why don't you just go with a 75g? A Kole will be much more happier in that.

I SERIOUSLY wouldnt put a kole in ANYTHING less than a 75g and 75g is the SMALLEST for tangs. I would just get the 75 and give them a better home.

Coraline is VERY GOOD algae. No CUC will eat it. You want coraline!!!
