Future 75 Gallon Tank

Well since I got my 29 Gallon Biocube I've fallen in love with SW tanks. So I'm planning on getting this used 75 Gallon Long tank that comes with lights, skimmer, sump, and everything you need basically. So I have been thinking of the stocking. I know I want a pair of B&W Clownfish and I seriously want a tang bad like a blue tang or a yellow tang the tank is really long so is this ok? And I would like lots of suggestions thanks

A 75 is one of those middle of the road tanks ..Great for so many fish,but not so great for so many fish......confusing ,,i know..
Personally ,i have seen and heard of many people having a yellow tang in a 75 for many years..I wouldn't do it,but thats just me,and i'm not going to say its ok or not ok to do..I also would not put a regal in one either...Look at a nice dwarf angel for a centerpiece fish..
What do you mean by 75 long??What are the dims?

Ya I've seen people having them to and I really would rather have a yellow tang. I already have a dwarf angel in my biocube (coral beauty) also what is a regal I don't think I mentioned that. And by long I mean the tank is long not tall it's longer than it is tall.

Hahahaha and hmm well this one isn't really shallow so I'll take a pic of it next time I'm at my LFS assuming it's still there. He has three but only one comes with everything.

A blue tang needs a 6 foot tank minimum. A yellow also belongs in the same. There are some tangs like koles that will be ok in a 75g. Check out www.liveaquaria.com for more detailed info.

Also I've never heard of a 6 foot 75g...are u sure its 72"?

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

Ok I'll ask how long they are. And I really don't know. I just know they are long.

Lol when first got my 55 I thought my god this thing is huge. Same thing when I got my 125. It always seems bigger at first . There are plenty of options other than tangs for a 75. Especially if you don't go corals.
