there may be another bright yellow tang that would work... cant think of the name though. todd and carey may be able to help, its a similar shape to a chocolate tang and vampire tang but its pure yellow and doesn't grow as big as the chocolate... bad description but that's all I can think of

Mimic tang, is that what youre thinking? Still too big for a 75g.....

On a different note how about a yellow lemonpeel angel? Same bright color as the yellow tang and alot nicer and better suited to a tank that size. I love my yellow tang, twitchy, but I didnt dare put him anything but a 6 foot tank. I';ve said it before and will say it again, that tang, as well as the others I have ALL use up every inch of my 6 foot 180g tank. I actually sometimes feel bad cause I have them locked up in such small quarters. When they are free to swim thats what they do and love. Mine will race back and forth from one end to the other continously sometimes, its then that I feel the worst. I am very glad I didnt go with my heart and get one for the 55g I had. I waited the extra few months to get the 125g so I could do the best i could by him.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yes, it was probably the mimic Lemonpeel tang you were thinking of. The actually get about as big as a Yellow, but lose a lot of the bright yellow as they get older. My LFS had one a while back and it took me a bit to figure out what it was because of that.
