I also have a cuc. I'm wanting to get 1-2 more tang, and maybe a pair of skunk clowns. Thoughts? Thanks for reading.
Tangs get territorial and aggressive. If you're going to want more than one they all have to be introduced at the same time to try to avoid these issues, same with wrasses and angelfish. Clowns are tricky, like most damsels. Personally, I like to steer clear of anything other than ocellaris clowns or the percula clowns. The others are just plain mean. You should look into something like a black and white heni. Or maybe a copper banded butterfly fish. They're a little more sensitive and the copper banded butterfly is kind of hard to get to eat. But they're all really cool fish.
Also, I agree about the firefish. In a tank that size you could get an orange firefish and maybe a purple firefish. (Added at the same time to avoid aggression.) you could also add something like a school of bar gobies.
