Even if I get em young? My next tank upgrade will be a 125g 6ft tank next year, I plan to upgrade every year, I think the 125g will be my permanent tank for a few years though.

It isn't the size that counts, it is the length they swim along with the bio load that many fish will add.

So I couldn't have more than one unless I get the 125g then?

I'm going to agree with Sniper on this. They are nice but it's safer to only stock one. Both for the tank and the individual fish.

I also agree with not going with two tangs in a 75g. I wanted to have some in my smaller tank but bit my tongue and held off until I got my 125g. Even then I only had three tangs and one was a tomini. Tomini is a very pretty fish but mine happens to be quite aggressive.

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

Ok so if you had to choose between the kole, yellow tang, and tomini, which would you choose?

As long as it isn't the yellow, either will be fine.

Yep, the kole or the tomini will be fine in that tank. The tomini is a nice color with the golden fins but whichever appeals to you the most.

Why not the yellow? Many people believe that a tank with that footprint is enough for a yellow.
