I am looking at this tank this afternoon which is equivalent to 179gals ( 698 litres ). Will this be ok for my tangs?

I would still aim for 6ft, while the total gallons is important, this footprint is going to suit you future stock list more.

There's a 6ft on ebay about 150kms away but my concern is the space it takes up. Currently renting so it limits me. Landlord wont be happy as my tanks have multiplied from 1 to 5 ( one empty ) lol

Yeah, I hear you. I am following a couple on eBay but as I rent an apartment too I am waiting until I can move into a bigger place for a bigger tank. The 4ft reef I have pretty much dominates my living room, but its the only tank I have...

The concept of moving these tanks with my next move makes me feel ill lol Debating which ones to sell but I am struggling with the idea as love them all - cichlids are so easy compared to this new venture with marine

If you want tangs, then don't do anything short of a 6foot tank. I have a 6ftx26"x26" and the tangs I have use every inch of the space. I'm planning to upgrade to an 8 foot in the next year once my new house is finished being built. Plus you don't realize it until you get it but a 30" deep tank and 30" front to back would really require enough room to get behind the tank. Could you imagine trying to reach the bottom near the back glass in that shape of tank?

I can reach it, BUT my tank is 25" deep and 25" front to back. A 30" deep and F2B tank is much more difficult depending in the height of the tank. I like the top of my 180 to be about shoulder level.
