Sorry I didn't read your whole thread so wasn't sure if you're having a HOB filter, canister filter, or sump?

Power heads

Your power heads simply plug into an outlet.

That's fine. It's a 75 gallon so your gonna need 2 good power heads. Not sure of your budget but.. The Vortech MP's are amazing IMO.

Koralia power heads are good also. Your probably gonna want 2 725's or even one 725 and one 1025. I have a 1025 in my Cichlid tank which is a 75 gallon.

Oh and my bio cube 29 gallon has one MP10 and it rocks!

i have 2 blue tang and they do ok . get along pretty well with others . I gave one of my sabae clown away coz it stressing my flower pot and kind of bully other tang and percula lol . I suggest if you get any tang get them all at once same time so they wont fight each other . Plus best bet is one each kind and they wont fight each other if they are diff shape and color.they get along like mine does .some fire shrimp would look great in the tank
