must stay out of the lfs

went to lfs (to check progress of mandrin he is holding for me) walked out with another skunk cleaner some snails and he is now holding a scopas tang for me 8O before i make a mistake and in fairness to the fish and the store will the scopas and the kole get along in the 75? or should i call and cancel the hold?

I am not a big fan of trying to do two tangs in a 75.

Scopas tangs get to 12 inches, the Kole, 7 inches. That is 19 inches of tang in a 75 gallon......using the old standby calculator of 1 inch of adult fish per 5 gallons of water...with just your tangs, you would, in theory, be overstocked.
