Just be prepared that the powder blue is a ick magnet.

do you plan on any corals?
PB are cool but can be a problem, do you have a QT tank for them?
Hope to see you at the Calfo meting in July..

The yellow tang is an excellent choice

I personally think a 75 isn't big enough for a Yellow or a Blue Hippo, most tangs need atleast a 6 foot tank. If you really want a tang, go with a Bristletooth Tomini, they stay under 5".

Mimic tang is another option. They grow to 6 in max.

A yellow and a kole will be OK in a 75. Yes 6 ft would be better but they will be fine in a 75

Agree with Melous on this.. I have had a PT in my 55 for a few years and I know another with a large healthy PT in his 55. Tanks are not packed with LR so the fish has swimming room and water quailty is a must... JMO..
I would add some more LR also.. I like a min of 1 lb per gallon, tangs are grazers and like lots of LR to pick at the algae. Also it gives plenty of hiding places for the fish.
