I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

No you cant. Tangs are swimmers and need alot of swimming room. A 45 gallon tank will not provide enough room.

Just wondering if anyone sees a big difference in up keep compared with a larger tank. I was thinking about starting a smaller tank like 10 or below and just keeping coral and inverts. any advice would help because I heard the smaller u go the harder it is.

J670: well the only thing that I can think of that's harder is that water parameters tend to fluctuate more and faster (temp, salinity, etc.)

No problem. We are all learning every day. There is this misconception out there that small tangs can go in small tanks. Not true at all and just wanted to get that out there.

Sorry I didn't see that you said you already had 2 wrasses. What type of clown do you have, and a single or just a pair.
