Hawaiian reef fish

I decided to make my 120g into a reef instead of a FOWLR. Now i have to make a stocking list and i want to have fish and corals from Hawaii and maybe the Marshall Islands. I have read that if you keep species specific to one area it is better because it is a more natural environment for them. All my LR is Marshall Island rock so i want to go from there with my livestock. Problem is that i have looked everywhere and found no good listing of fish from either of these locations. I know for sure i want a Chevron Tang and maybe a Goldflake Angel, but thats about it. If anyone could list some cool hawaiian or marshall island reef fish, it would be greatly appreciated.

i just put my new lights on it so its just about ready to go. I need a little more rock before i start stocking. I have 440W of VHO lighting on the tank so i should be able to keep softies and some LPS. Pics will be up as the tank progesses.
