Possable 75 gallon build

It's between a 30 I already have or a new 75 I was thinking of buying but not sure yet

I know I'd need about a pound per gallon LR and 2inch sand bed

My question would be like estimated price difference to set up and to maintain....also what would be easier to keep healthy? Eventually go reef but not for many month when my lfs has a blowout sale every year.

I also would like to stock a tang or 2 in there.
Wouldn't get all just a few but id like everyone's take on this list and I know not all are compatible.

Wish list:
Powder blue tang
Hippo tang
Yellow tang
Scopes tang
Yellow strip Maroon clown or pair O. Clowns
Mandarin
And a goby of some sort

That doesn't make it adequate. And that would've encompassed one tang on your list. I believe the rest get a lot bigger.

I believe the kole tang and tomini tang can be kept in a 75g though.
