Liveaquaria.com and bluezooaquatics.com are great online stores for fish, inverts, and corals. Also good quick stats and info. If you want to see crazy neon, awesome, rare corals look at aquasd.com. It's my LFS and the store and people there are fantastic and the livestock is of the best quality.

Shouldn't be your first fish, but the McCosker's wrasse is awesome and beautiful. What did you have in mind?

A guy in Winnipeg working at the fish gallery said yellow tangs are probably the brightest fish and easy to maintain to take care of. But the price is not a beginners bet choice

Tangs might be a bad idea. They stress easily in smaller tanks and are magnets for parasites when that way.
There are many, many fish. Some like tanks full of small fish like wrasses and gobies, while others go for the medium sized fish for a tank your size, fish like dwarf angels and rabbit fish.
