On clams? I have no luck as my blenny likes them but they do like more nutrients in the system than sps. However they need as much light as acropora

I would pick one tang of the two. I have a single tang in my 90g and believe me, thats more than enough.

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

Coral banded shrimp might kill your other shrimp and each other. If you want the others for sure I would be hesitant on the coral banded. Though some people have had no issues.

Ahh, if I could I would have 5 yellow tangs lol how about adding a 3rd tang for aggression purposes? I hear keeping an odd number lowers aggression greatly. I like tomini tangs would that be an option? I would drop a few other fish to keep one more tang in the tank. Opinions??

The coral banded was just for aesthetic purposes anyway, I like my skunks way better.

Having odd numbers if fish is more towards those that school together to avoid aggression. Tangs tend to be aggressive towards each other always at the start and I have been told there are less aggression issues if you out together tangs that don't look like each other.

So the kole, tomini, and yellow tang would be a good idea then? I dont thing they look similar, maybe the tomini and kole but not too much.

I wouldn't try more than one in a 75, unless tank size has changed and I didn't catch it.
