A Scooter Blenny could survive in a 40 gallon breeder if you have a lot of Live Rock and Live Sand for pods to populate. This is their main diet, kind of like the Mandarin. I had a Mandarin in a 46 gallon (he's in my 150 now), but I also had a 15 gallon refugium for pods to populate. And that always helps, having a niced sized fuge for pods to multiply. Are you using a sump for this 40b? You might also need to add pods, like Reef Nutrition's "Tigger Pods" to increase the population. Do this at night with the lights out, so other fish in the tank don't gobble them all up before they seed the rock...
As far as Tangs go. The smallest tank I would consider for one specific genus of tangs is a 75 gallon. And at that point only the Ctenochaetus
genus. They are the smallest of the Tangs, and could accomodate smaller tanks (by smaller I mean 75 and above). Every other Tang I would agree with Cody, some tank with the length and width dimensions of a 150. A 125 is the same dimensions, but it is not as deep.
There are a lot of nice fish that could fit in a 40 breeder though. Any other thoughts?
