+1 on the midas. My LFS always has at least 1 in, mine is my favorite. I want a kole for my new 90 I'm building, that and/or a tomini.

They are gorgeous but I think they get too big for a 75 gallon. They grow to 1' 3" long and just about as tall with fins extended. They wouldn't have much room to swim.

You can buy them very small for about 20 dollars I started mine in a 40g when he was about 2 inches he is about 13 inches now and that was 4 years ago and he is now in my 250g reef they don't grow very quickly and you can sell him for a lot of money when he out grows your tank.

There are some good looking anthias, I thinking of adding a couple because live aquaria says they will form shoals.
