I wouldn't brag about 2 hippos in a 29g. Even when small they can get stressed out due to tank size. A stressed blue tang is a serious issue.

Good luck with those tangs

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

How long is a long time? A long time is keeping them 20 years to me and yes saltwater fish live that long if properly taken care of.

There is probably a reason why your tangs aren't growing that fast. I am only bringing up the fact that a 75 gallon tank is too small for a blue tang for the tangs long term health. I only suggest the bristletooth tangs for a 75 gallon tank because they stay smaller in size. Also I only suggest one tang in a tank that small. People leave this hobby because of bad experiences, so getting fish that can live their entire life in your tank without an upgrade are the only ones that should be considered. If you are going to upgrade, wait to buy it until then.
