Fish Stocking my new 210g reef tank

Hey guys I recently moved from my 90g to a 210g!! And I was just wondering what you guys thought about some fish stocking ideas. I currently have:
-blue hippo tang
-yellow tang
-bartletts anthias (1)
-flame angel
-Maroon clownfish (2)
-twin spot goby
-bengai cardinal

And that's about it fish wise. Here's what I want to add:

-blonde naso tang
-tomini tang
-queen angel
-purple tang (2)
And maybe a vlamingi?

Lmk what u guys think!

Even for a 210, that is way too many tangs. I wouldn't try to keep more than 3 in there for fear of aggression.

I agree. Maybe one or two more Tangs. I'd go Blonde and maybe Purple.

Fish Stocking my new 210g reef tank

The vlamingi and queen angel will get to large for that tank IMO

The length is perfect for tangs, but these guys don't always get along. They are big fish and you still need enough room for them to have space to get away from one another if necessary. I wouldn't shoot for more than 3.
