Together In A 72?

I have a 72 bow front aquarium.My cyling process is going 2 start in December.After it is done i am going 2 get some clownfish because I do not want 2 put my main fish in there first because they may die.After for about 2 months I will get my main fish.I went to aquarium advice and they said a yellow tang,kole yellow tang,foxface,tassle filefish could get along in the same tank.So I was wondering after I get all my fish in there could I get a great seahorse-tank bread in my 72 without harming any of the fish or eating them?

I think all those fish in a 72 gallon seems like a bit much. I know the foxface and yellow tang can get a pretty good size. Most people say too, that two tangs in a smalelr tank usually arn't good. I'd probably just choose one tang and stick with the smaller fish.

I have the exact same tank and I have a pair of clownfish, yellow tang, hippo tang and a 6 line wrasse. My hippo tang is getting huge (I've had him for over 3 years) and the yellow tang isn't far behind him. I can see that I'll probably end up trading in the hippo because he's getting too large among other things......and the hippo and yellow tang don't always get along. I would really re-consider putting two tangs in this tank.

maybe the reason they are called hippo tangs if because the are the hippo size of the Tang species. Hippos are rather large animals

No you can't put seahorses in with the fish. They seahorses typically can't compete with the fish for food and will die.

Sure as long as you definitely don't want a reef tank.
