Any macros and such would probably be eaten anyway by the tang. Coralline algae will still grow under NO lights. Damsels are cool and should do ok. Here are some compatibility charts for you to look at. It may help you in what you decide to get.

thanks, fluff.

i've been thinking about this a lot and am starting to think i should upgrade to a 90 gallon tank as i haven't purchased anything yet.

so my setup will be as follows:
-90 gallon tank
-100 lbs of fiji live rock
-emperor 400 powerfilter, two HOT magnum canister filters, and a super skimmer 125
-coralife lunar aqualight 260watt 50/50 lightstrip

i reaaallly want 3 yellow tangs! they look so good in groups.

Switching from a 75 to a 90 is not really going to help, interms of how many tangs you can keep. THey need horizontal swimming space and the 90 only gives veticle space. If you want three tangs, look into a 6ft. tank like a 125. These fish just need space.
