The tang was the reason I upgraded to the 125g. I just had to have one. But I wasn't willing to risk the fishes life just to get one. Lol. To each their own I suppose.

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

My LFS has a Longnose Hawkfish and I love it he is super cute IMO and the same one has been there awhile at least I think. And he has a Longnose Butterflyfish which I love to so would those be ok for a 75?

Same here,but they do make them
Glasscages.com - Online Order Form - 75 Long Glass Aquarium

I agree about almost all tangs in a 6 footer,but like i said,,i know of people who have 7-8 year old yellow tangs in 75's...still doesn't mean i would do it or tell anyone else to

Butterfly fish are often hard to keep and picky eaters, so do some research on the specific one before you buy.
