finish 75gal stocking

So I finished my upgrade from a 55 to a 75. Everybody is back in the tank, I finally mastered the art of the sump, and it looks a little bare. I only have about 50lbs of live rock, but I'm also lacking fish. So far I have two ocellaris clowns, one sixline, one lawnmower blenny, and a banggai cardinal. I'd like to get more banggais, make it a group of 4 or 5. But it seems whenever I get them they only last a few days. I'd also like a royal gramma, but the past two I've gotten have been infested with flukes. My mother wants a tang really badly. But I think a 75 is too small for any tang? Does anyone have an opinion on expanding my stocklist?

Wow, so many options! Only advice I can offer is to read twice add once. Have a look at the link below as some tangs can/could be kept in your tank. As always it depends on individual circumstances.

I believe the tomini (bristletooth?) And the kole yellow can be kept in 75g tanks.

Yep, the bristletooth tangs can go in a 75 as well as the yellow eye kole tang.

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

What about a scopas or a sailfin? (not both of course) My mom really like those two options.

Those tend to grow pretty big unfortunately. Have you checked out Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums ? Go to tangs and on the right set the tank size and those that are ok will show up.
