I'd opt for the 150g. You get more space.

I've never had a big enough tank for tangs, but everyone here keeps saying "minimum 6' tank for most tangs" (yellow included I think). Although the bigger tank should display the corals nicer, if it's fish your concerned about I think the longer tank may be the ticket.

I agree if your getting tangs get the longer tank.

The naso will possibly grow too large for a both of those. Just a thought!!!!! Both sound pretty good, depends if you want a 6' tank or not.

I'd go with the 6ft tank all you lose is 6in of depth compared to the visual impact of the 6 ft tank
