Just checking zach.

How much room do you have to play with? Is 6 feet too big or would a 4 foot tank be more your speed as far as space?

a typical 90 is the exact same as a 75 but about 3 inches or so taller. It is 4 feet long by 18 inches from back to front.

I wouldnt go more than 2 tangs in a 90g and then only the ones like tomini's and Kole ones. I plan about 10-12 fish in mine BUT I will only have 2 large fish, all the rest will be under 4". It's all a matter of balancing the fish size and bioload with the tank size. I will also only be doing a fowlr, no coral and not a huge amount of rock.

Yep, I agree, 1 or 2. If you do get two, I would recommend adding them at the same time to avoid aggression.

Hey Zach, I'm a freshy so I don't know to much about this. I was going to set up a SW tank a while ago and was told by RedSea (who seems to be a VERY knowledgeable SW guy), that I could only have 4 or so small fish in a 30g. I was pretty surprised! I'm used to being able to put 20-25 or so small fish in a 30g! Anyway I know where you're coming from (not liking the small amounts of fish) and I just had to accept it! Maybe you could cross over to the FW side of things and get a boatload of fish
