Always wanted to raise a clown tang. He lives with a bunch of coral, a rabbit fish and a green mandarin. He bugs the rabbit fish some but the rabbit fish knows he won't mess with him too much once his spines stand up. He is crazy active, more so than any of my other tangs. He has doubled in size in 6 months. But he still has his juvenile coloration.

What about good ole clownfish. In my opinion a must have for any saltwater tank ( provided they aren't food for predatory fish) full of personality And if you get them hosting an anemone it is always cool to watch them roll in it. There are some really cool patterned designer clowns available.

Ok so how about gobies? I had a couple orange spot diamond gobies that were awesome (lost them in a tank crash) kept the sand bed spotless. Also a big fan of engineer gobies. They tend to hide but look just like an eel and are reef safe, only concern is that they can topple rock if its not stable. Easy to avoid if your rock is placed on the glass bottom then sand added around it. Wrasses are also nice looking but beware cause alot are not reef safe. I had a mccoskers wrasse (also lost in the crash) and he was awesome. Very colorful and always leisurely cruising the rock work.

I'm going for a school of fire fish and mabye a Midas. I'm thinking about a blue spotted jaw fish and I don't rally know if a orange spot an a blue spot would get along

As for the white tailed bristletooth tang, I have been on liveaquarias wait list for over 2 years for one and they have never come into stock. Not one lfs I know, and trust me, thats alot of them, has even heard of them let alone able to get one. I settled for a blue eyed tang for the 90g instead. Beautiful fish but he is a nasty fish. he torments the aggressive wrasses I have in there sometimes. Based on that I wouldnt mix him with a regular community fish tank. He does ok cause of the aggressive fish I have already in there but not sure how he would respond to less aggressive fish.
Hey Carey I'm not sure if this is what you're refering to as a "white tail tomini" but I've had one for a few months and this place has them in stock.
