Tangs compatibility

Does anyone think a Kole and a Convict could coexist peacefully in a smaller tank? I have a 75 and I think both those fish are great. But, if you had to chose, which one would you advise my to get?

No. A 75 is too small for 2 tangs regardless of what they are. The Kole would be OK in that tank tho.

I agree with Larry that I think the Kole would be the best bet also. They are very hardy and should do quite good in your 75.

I think either tang will eventually wig out in a 75. Just not enough swimming room. Not to mention it will slaughter your bioload.
