Nope, a 75 is not even close to big enough.

I agree. It wont be big enough for that fish. Most places recommend a 6 ft tank. I would suggest a 125 to a 180 at least.

Yellow eyed kole tangs are usually a good tang for a 75. About the only tang you can do in a 75 besides a yellow. I think yellows even get stressed out in a 75

You might get away with that one too.
