It was too big for their tank .
They are cheap to purchase I'm a little scared of the venomous barbs

I wouldn't put a foxface in a 2 foot long tank, they are grazers like tangs and get fairly large. An angler would be awesome or you could do seahorses with a little bit of extra care. There are tons of stocking options for a cube and it's dimensions are nice. Also, on angels being reef safe, my friend had a flameback for a year that did wonderful than one day decided to just eat all his clams and acans. IMO no angel is ever truly reef safe even if it has been in a tank for a while.

I wouldn't do a seahorse they need a species tank and that extra care is a lot for a community tank

I have a 60g 24x24x24 rimless and have a nice selection of fish, just small ones. Most of the fish mentioned I wouldnt put in that size tank though. :-( It is an awesome tank for corals though as it has a great front to back dimension so rockscaping is easy and looks super in this size tank. Thats why I got mine, to make a fullblown reef vs a "fish" tank per se. I think the biggest fish I have in the 60g are my b&w clowns. I have a bunch of gobies and blennies too but it looks pretty nice in my opinion. The full blown reef has had to wait as I am infested with aipastia at the moment. lol But thats what I think the cubes are best for. Just my opinion.

If you want a tang then a 75g is the bare minimum in my experience. Even then, you would have to stick with one, but you could have a foxface and even a school of fish if you wanted. Its that 4 foot length that makes the difference, not the extra 15g of water.

If you have the 60g already just stock it with ":happy" small fish, they can be just as cool as the large fish. lol
