x2 on this, is it because they're more prone to ich? Or the aggression level? Maybe maximum size? Remember ill be upgrading again next year so it wont be in a 75 for long.

I like the tomini but I think the body is too dark, the kole is nice I just like the body to be more maroonish brown and not blackish grey, opinions?

I believe yellows are just like blues and need the 6ft or swimming room. I think it plays a huge part in their successes, as they don't deal with stress so well. The other two tangs aren't as big open water swimmers and can manage smaller tanks easier. This is why you can see their tank requirements as being 70 on LA, if I remember correctly.

Tang tank suggestions are generally based on the size of the tang itself. Tangs such as the powder blue, naso, and blue hippo get well over a foot long. The yellow tang maxed out at 8" which is the same as a kole yellow eye. There are plenty of people that think yellows are perfectly fine in a 75g while others think they need at least a 125. It's all going to come down to personal belief on the subject since its heavily debated.

Has anyone seen yellow and blue at 8" in a reef tank and how long will they reach that size? I have both in a 4' footprint tank for about a year now and seem to be doing pretty good. May be it's about time to upgrade.

Do you have experience with a kole greg? Do they stay a maroonish brown or go grayish black?

They were about 2 inches (yellow and blue tang) when I got them and they are now 2x as big and they have been doing fine in a 60 gal 48 inch long tank.

Btw acclimating them is very critical cause they easily get stressed out. I almost lost the blue cause he got ich but he survived after a quarantine with copper treatment.
