I put up a thread regarding kole tangs and a 75 and many people said it was ok. If im not mistaken, Kole Tangs are more of a grazer swimmer than a straight line open swimmer, so they don't need as long of a tank. A 90 would be fine IMO.

Tomini Tangs work in that size as well. Most I have seen at LFS are kinda plain, but sometimes they have bright orange and look really cool.

If you can find them.

There are about six that work for 75g+. Two Spot/blue eyes and Squaretails work too. They are fairly difficult to find though.

My local dealer has access to all sorts of hard to find fish im pretty lucky, and he only picks out the best looking fish for his store stock unless he gets a specialty order he said he would take me along to pick out my WTBT

Mine does too and they usually have a fish or two that I've never seen before selling for big money. I've had a white tail tang on their list for a year now...no luck.

You really have to knitpick your lfs employees for specific fish like that. Even then its really tough to get "that perfect specimen" lol. I looked around for a green mandarin that was in good condition for a long time. I finally found one that had beautiful coloration but there was a catch >.< he was extremely malnourished. I bought him with the intent to get him back into good condition. I had an abundance of pods in my display and an exploding population of them in my 'fuge. Unfortunately he only lasted six weeks as he was not eating as much as he needed.. This exact reason is why i am skeptical about buying livestock online. You really cant see the fish you are buying.

Quick off topic question!! I have had a cleaner shrimp for a long time and its gotten really big.. Its quite the devil when im trying to feed the corals that eat silversides and shrimp. Ive tried to feed it a peice of the same food but when its done it rips the food out of my coral's mouths. I really want it out but its impossible to catch and i cant get a fish that will eat it because i dont want my harlequin to die too. Any suggestions?
