    If you keep an eye out on craigslist and reefcentral you should be able to get a 90 or 120 gallon reefready tank for around a 100 bucks. You should be able to find one new on sale for less than 250 too.

    Their really arent any "ups" to a 75 IMO if you can go 75 you can go 90. The extra height and water volume are the plus to a 90. If you are careful with your fish selection a 90 could last you a lifetime. You just dont want to go with fish that are too large or need too much swimming room. If you research your fish before buying you can make any sized tank work. A 90 is a perfect tank before getting into "large" systems. Give you room to work with without being overwhelming. Just my opinion and Im sure many feel differently, my two cents is all.

    ok well i am probably only going to get 1 or 2 more fish, and they will be small fish. manly the only thing i will be adding is coral. should i still go with a 75, it looks like a good tank to me but u know more than me also

    It all depends on what you want out of the 75gal.If you want a bunch of tangs then a 75 won't work.Learn to work with the limitation an it will give you many years of enjoyment.A 75 will do nicely.

    yes I will only have one tang. I might get a school of 4 or 5 toney fish to add on to what I have now when I get the 75 gallon but that's it. So will a yellow tang be happy in a coral 75 gallon tang with many 9 or 10 much smaller fish

    Ryan is correct. I started out with a 90. Then went to a 225.

    A 75 would work with a Yellow tang. But that put's limit's on your fish list. 9 or 10 more fish would be a heavy Bio-load for a 75. Fish not only need room to swim, but area's to control. To many fish and not enough room and fight's start to happen. They need a place to defend and then hide. It's tuff in this hobby because you can't alway's have want you want. If you do go with a 75 that would be fine for the tang & may 2 other small fish. But keep in mind the higher Bio-load you have, the better equipment you have to have.

    I know a 75 to you sounds HUGE. But to a fish that's come from the Ocean, well it's like stuffing you into a shoe box. So no more then 3 fish for the 75, due to the big yellow tang. And if you go 90 add one more fish and your done. But a 120 or 125 and then you'd be ok with what you want.

    Just my 2 cent's.
