And a kole tang requires a 75g? The length is still the same as a 55g though. It's just wider. I think the depth is even the same too. How big do kole tangs get?

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

6 inches but they're ACTIVE!!! All tangs are, thats they're problem, will this be a reef or FO, if not a reef I'd suggest an easier butterflyfish for a display fish

I looked at the cardinal fish. It says at liveaquaria that they eat live food and are semi aggressive. That kinda turned me off to them. I dont want to have to deal with live food. :-(

I know youre trying, thanks for that. Am i wrong about the cardinal fish?

All good. Someone will chime in i'm hoping. i should have the setup tuesday and i want to get my stocking list ready before then. Wanna setup the rockwork is the fish I want need anything special. I still am getting a watchman goby and the gramma I think.

My stock list will read :
2 black oscellaris
1 lawnmower blenny
1 watchman goby
1 royal gramma

So what can i add to that? if i go to the 75g 4 foot tank is a kole tank reasonable? My LFS says as long as its four feet long it could be a 55g but we know how the lfs people are. I just really trust this person and she seems to think 4 feet is ok for tangs.

Please don't flame, just really wanna wade through the rumors and find out whats true.

thanks for reading, i know this one was long lol
