Two tangs in my 75 gallon?
 
Speaking of tangs, I want to get a yellow tang and maybe a blue tang. My question is, I have a 75 gallon tank, can I put 2 tangs in the tank. Other than fighting is this going to be enough room for 2?

My future fish before the tang hope to include:

3 chromis
2 FP clowns
1 lawnmower blenny
1 purple firefish or bi-colored blenny
or possibly a long-horned cowfish instead of the above firefish/blenny
1 yellow tang
1 blue tang

I can sale the chromis if needed. I just got them to make sure that something lived before putting in something expensive like last time.

two tangs in a tank that small is not advised.

Also whichever one you decide on, put'm in last. They can get kinda territorial with new additions.

Yes, I know they are very territorial. I also have not had my tank long and need to wait much longer before adding in a tang. I was just curious and looking into my future. I will probably get a yellow since they seem to be the most hardiest. Besides the tang, does my list of future fish above seem to be ok or is it too much of a bioload?

It looks sensible to me. I thought about adding another tang to a 75 but decided against it. I have a good sized yellow tang now and thought about a regal blue but I'd hate to see it harassed by my favorite fish. Also, some think that a 75 isn't adequate enough for a hippo and while that's debatable, you're really pushing it doing two tangs in a 75. I opted to go with a flame angel instead and I'm happy that I did. After only one day of the tang "explaining" to the angel where his favorite cave is, everyone gets along fine...

That's funny..... I know I am a long way off for a tang however that doesn't stop me slobbering all over them at the LFS.....lol. Thanks for the advice.

I completely understand. Every time I see a nice Powder Blue or Blonde Naso, thoughts like, "if I just take out that wall I could easily fit a 200 gallon tank in my dining room"...

I know what you mean. I never would have thought I would become this obsessed over fish....lol.
