In my experience, having a longer tank is better than a taller one as it gives the fish more room to cruise. 150 would be the minimum I would suggest if you want to keep it for a long time. I would suggest larger if you can though.

It's not easy to see in the pic but there was algae growing on these rocks that Convict, Yellow and Sailfin Tangs kept mowed down. Notice how robust(thick) this Sailfin was. 
This pic shows how fat a healthy tang can be, grazing on algae.


The Caulerpa in this tank was allowed to grow thick without any herbivorous fish, until a Sailfin was added.  
The pic below was about 8 months later. By then the Caulerpa was completely eaten.

Most hobbyists don't consider placing their reef aquarium in the sun, but I have to say, it's amazing what the sun does for a reef. Herbivores love it, coral and so many different organisms look and grow amazing with some sun. The only caution is to make sure it's not direct sun all day long.
The three pics above are the same 75 gal tank, only one of many tanks that I have placed in the window over the years.
Below is another, placed in an east facing picture window.This 75 gal was home to three,  yes 3, fairly large herbivorous fish;a Yellow Tang, a Purple Tang and a Scribbled Rabbitfish.

Bump, still have it. It is in mint condition. Willing to throw a few Frags in as well. Mystic monti, bonsai acro, maybe another.

Filter socks don't even looked used. May discount the tank if you don't want the sump/ato/plumbing.

Oh yeah, I believe it. There are amphipods that are quite large, up to like 6". I know a hobbyist that has to wear those long gloves all the time in their tank because they are susceptible to a tiny water flea that lives in reef aquariums

Sure, a huge tank is good but they can do fine in 75 gal tanks. One special key to keeping Tangs happy and healthy is to grow algae in the display for them to graze on. Tangs are like cattle. They need to be able to graze all day. They need to be fat. The grazing is not just for eating the algae, it's also an activity that is in their genes. It seems to make them happy.

There are cool looking algae that can be grown in the display for a few months prior to introducing the Tangs. Eventually the algae gets pretty much decimated, but by then the Tangs should have gotten accustomed to eating Romaine and Greenleaf lettuce as well as a little bit of Nori now and then. I'll add a picture of this later

Sailfin Tangs don't bother fish at all, even small ones, but they do need to be trained to get along with other similar body shape Tangs. The way to train fish is described in a topic listed in the Reefkeeping Tips linked below in my signature line.

Aloha,
Mark.

Has anyone ever tried to run the Kessil A150 from the Neptune 1link. I want to remove the kessil power supply and adapt it to the 1link.  Is this possible.  The numbers seem to line up.  Am I overlooking something?  Thanks for any responses.  Jeff
