If its not 6' I wouldn't put a trigger or tang in it. Depends on the type of wrasse but the bigger predatory species need 6' also.

Ok, no tang except for kole or tomini, and no triggers. You'll run into issues if you do.

Triggers need just as much space if not more then a tang because of their agression

LIveAquaria says 70g is okay for a few triggers and they tend to go larger than other sites. Aggression is always a concern for most triggers. They should be okay, but the other fish would probably like more room to steer clear.

And swimming patterns. My trigger swims much more than my tang. No triggers.

And I have one of those triggers that it says 70g for. A Niger, and it swims a ton more than my yellow tang. If you want something like a trigger, go for a filefish. They're peaceful, and don't as big, and look just like triggers!!!!!!
