Two dwarfs in anything smaller than a 240g would probably fight. Even in large tanks, they could go at each other, but that at least gives them a larger territory with a better chance of not bumping into one another.

This would be my opinion also.

I thought the Tang Police would be knocking on my door as soon as I said Yellow Tang in a 55. :-p

I know it's not the idea situation, but it was better than what he was in.

Lol, RUN! There on to you

Dramatic moments over, my planed filtration on this is a Rena 722 Xp3 canister along with a peguin 55 hob bio wheel. Should that Suffice? Also 2-3 hydror Koralia 750/850 power heads and a corallife 05271 65g skimmer. Not rated for a 75 but I plan on adding a smaller 20-30 skimmer also later on

For the cost of buying filters I would recommend getting the tank either drilled or adding a hang on overflow and running a sump. To get a fancy acrylic sump around my area costs about 200 bucks and a hob overflow is about 100. For a decent canister is about 250. I know after personal experience your better off to spend the extra 50 for a sump. Way less maintenance and its a natural form of filtration (if you have a refugium) plus the refugium is a great spot for pods to breed to sustain a mandarin which lets face it we all like mandarins. I did the canister thing and it worked so don't think it won't but it is extra work when you have to clean It often. Heck my father in law runs 2 canisters on his tank and it is a great system. However a sump is easier to maintain and adds water volume which adds stability. Plus then you can hide your heaters and skimmer there and not have to look at them.

Oh and on the tang question, Kole "yellow eye" is my vote or I did see once a blue eye tang. Looked identical but had a blue ring around the eye. Very sharp looking.
