I wouldn't put both of those tangs in a 75.
The coral banded can get nasty as they get larger as well.
What about a CUC?

oooo, I like.

I was thinking of getting a clam. I know some species get huge, but is there one that looks brilliant that I could add to my aquarium?

Dont get 2 tangs. Too small a tank for 2. A yellow would be OK. I have a Coral Banded shrimp and he hasnt messed with anything and he is about 3 inches long. He even somehow lost all his legs to something. So much for aggressive.

A CUC (Clean up crew) is formed by adding snails, hermit crabs, and sand sifting snails, to keep the tank clean.

Crocea clams stay on the smaller side.

oh, right, clean up crew. I figured the starfish might help a bit with that depending on what species, but I haven't put a whole lot of thought into it. I was going to get some kind of sand sifting goby and a few hermits. should I get snails as well just for biodiversity? I don't want some snail that's going to breed like crazy.

in a couple years I plan on turning my 125g freshwater into a saltwater, you don't think 2 tangs would be okay growing up in a 75g and then later on down the road go to a bigger tank?

I have about 125g of water in my 75g system. 35g sump 40g refugium 75g tank. If your worried about water quality, I don't think that's going to be an issue, but if your worried about them being crowded that's a possibility.

Snails lay eggs like crazy but they rarely hatch, the other critters eat them.
I like nassarius, ceriths and margarita snails.

Would a marine Betta be reef safe and get along with the list of livestock I provided?

It won't eat corals, but shrimp, small fish and some snails are on it's menu.
