For my 75g FO DT I have compiled a list of what I could foresee as my potential full aquarium and would like any feedback you may have. So below is the list with a few priorities noted by a prefix of A,B&C should I need to scale back a few members of the community. Also from a bioload stand point ill be using an eshopps x120 skimmer.

A-1xPowder blue tang (understanding I would likely need to trade when he becomes large - ive seen max recommend tank size of 55, 75, 90 and 125???)
A-2x ocellaris clown
A-1 green dragonette
A-1x banded shrimp
A-1x elec blue crab
A-1x halloween hermit crab
A-1x coral beauty
A-1x latticed butterfly
A-1x bicolor angelfish
A-1x six line wrasse
B-2x citrinis clown goby
B-2x bartletts anthias
C-1x azure damsel

From what I can tell these are all compatible but given so much in the tank, perhaps not? I feel like my biggest concern though is the powder blue tang.

Understanding, this is all to be spread out over time, so perhaps if I start seeing a size issue I'll upgrade 😉. At any rate, I welcome your comments.

I am by no means an expert, but two dwarf angels (the coral beauty and bicolor) might be a problem in 75 gallon tank. Also, the butterfly might not hold up to the aggression of the angel, wrasse, tang and clowns. Finally, dragonettes are tough to keep supplied with the right type of food.

Just my $0.02, good luck

The powder blue tang needs 125, and I agree about the dragonette he will be out competed for food by the larger more aggresive fish.

I agree the PBT needs a larger tank, They just swim and swim and swim. My buddy has one in a 8 foot 240 and some days I think he needs more room. IF your set on a tang what about a Tomini Tang ... They stay kinda small.

125 for pbt even as a juvenile?or just when full size?

This supplier says 55min for pbt and 'recommends 90+' https://www.saltwaterfish.com/product-powder-blue-tang-15367 this is partly where my confusion lies. I kind puff had my heart set on a yellow belly blue regal, a blue regal or a powder blue being in the tank. I realized three first two needed even more room so i ruled them out. I would be ok with getting him small and only being able to keep for a few years I the current size tank if you guys think there's an option. But if you think that's still Ann issue seven with a juvenile I suppose i will reluctantly have to reconsider...

Oh one other consideration... possibly becauase I'm not filling the tank up worth 60-75% rock and coral I would think that would factor in to minumun sizing or is that generally assumed and you need to upsize if you have these?

The tang will swim non stop in a tank that small. Then it will turn its frustration into aggression and any fish you try to add will likely be killed and it will terrorize the tankmates it already had. Just pick a smaller tang or get a bigger tank

Ok thanks this helps with the why behind tank recommendations and the reasoning behind the extra swim space.
