75 Reef Build!

Yay I'm finally getting my reef tank together!!! I got the tank ready my next step is get a filter and protein skimmer. I'm going to run a fluval 405 canister but I'm not sure about what protein skimmer to run. Any suggestions? And I'm also getting a T5 HO 4 bulb fixture. Any suggestions on that too?? thank you!

if you are running without a sump, you are limited to a HOB skimmer.

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

75g is the minimum tank requirement for a Kole tang, one of the few that don't require a 6 foot tank.

List looks good, a bit full, 10 fish is alot for a 75g but stay on your water parameters and you should be fine.

I like to think that the only good tank size for a tang in general is a 125Gal plus. I love tangs, but don't have the room for a 125Gal tank right now. Like I say now anyways. Always trying to make room for a new tank! Lol
