All tangs that can live in a 75
 
I'm curious, that's all. I'm looking for a 75 deal on Craigslist for SW. I want two tangs if possible but ones that can live there full life happy an healthy in a 75. Please don't go tang police, I'm not talking about yellow or blue hippos.

Although 2 tangs in a 75 might be pushing it, most Bristletooth Tangs (but not all) as well as Kole Yellow eye are suitable for the 4 ft tank.

+1 to this. The kole (sometimes called yellow eye) and tomini (sometimes called flame fin) are probably your best choices. However, they are from the same genus and I tend to think two, even of different species, will fight relentlessly until one is dead in a 75.

The Kole is the best bet IMO. A coral beauty is also a good choice. Any dwarf angelfish may peck at some corals, or may not. It's just luck. But the beauty is the best choice.

Yep, got to be be careful. Can't afford coral led lights for a 75. Haaha I how would this sound as a stocking list

1x kole yellow eye tang or a white tail bristle tooth
1x coral beauty or a red stripe angel
6x cardinalfish or firefish
1x blue spot jaw fish or a red head Solon fairy wrasse

Would that be max stocking?

I don't think you're close to being maxed out.

I think it's a fine start. If everything goes well there are other fish or shrimp you could add as your filtration stabilizes for this first group. I wouldn't add everything at once.

Yep, big filtration. As much as I can get. Might not do a sump. Lots of live rock an sand. A fulval canister, a aqua clear hob, an two seprate smaller skimmers on each side if the tank. Hmm, I love my inverts haha. So lots of hermits and snails and starfish.

How many cleaner shrimp could I have, if possible, I would like a blood red and a skunk shrimp. Also, could u had a flasher wrasse, or would that cause trouble with the other wrasse?
