you can get a yellow tang. you just have to buy it small, and can't keep it very long.

I have to say this is probably my favorite fish... When my tank is finally going I will try to get a mated pair.

If you can get the ORA Aquacultured ones they are supposed to be pretty good. If not then you need a healthy Pod population to support them. As long as there is food they will eat then they do great. Some times wild ones can be trained to eat store bought food but that's the "hard" part of keeping them, having a good Pod population is best.

it takes time. they populate the tank on their own. you can add a bottle of pods to the tank to kick start the colony, but i really don't think a 75 is the place for 2 mandarins that aren't eating prepared foods.

also, you have to take care not to add any other fish that compete with them for food.
