    Can I keep a yellow tank in a 75 gallon tank?

    If not what about a one eye fox face?

    While I know a lot of folks that do keep Yellow Tangs in 4ft tanks, I can't recommend it.
    MOST tangs require a 6ft tank to be happy. 4ft just don't allow for their active lifestyles.

    If your dead set on a tang in a 75, you might look at the Firefin or the Atlantic Blues.

    I think a Foxface would be alright.

    Cool.. From what I read they would be ok with a pair of clowns and a watchman goby and a fire fish.. Just want to make sure everything will live happy together.

    Kole tangs (and many of the Ctenochaetus species of tangs) will be okay in a 75; so will the mimic tangs (elibi mimic, lemonpeel mimic, halfblack mimic). I think the atlantic blues get quite large though and I don't think I'd try one in a 75.
