-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab

they would hypothetically... but you'd have to upgrade that tank. Tangs need SWIMMING space! 100 gal + for those two IME

Agreed. Too small for those two. The absolute smallest tank IMO would be a 75 and they would have to go in together or the yellow last.
