I understand the tank size with tangs. Please don't comment about that my hippo tang is small and is doing fine. The holding tank he was in at the lfs
was much smaller. We are upgrading has we go and as he grows. This hobby can be expensive. Thanks
Look for problems if you do. Not one of these fish are compatible with a 75g, so expect territory wars from the get go. Already the fish have two stress factors, swimming room and territory. Powder blues and hippos are already so susceptible to disease and infection a simple cut on one of them could mean its demise. If you must have a tang, i highly suggest only one, and you still may have problems down the road.
