Yeah, blue gangs are I think, the most peaceful. The powder blue tangs are really aggressive. As far as eels or lion fish, it depends, are you making this a reef?

Eels and lionfish are really messy eaters so if you would want one, you would need a good protein skimmer and refugium to keep nitrates low. Also, eels can knock down corals that aren't glued down.

K, so I just need to add a skimmer... Already got the sump and stuff. It'll be a 55g sump.

If you did the lion your smaller fish would get eaten. They can eat anything 1/2 of their size. So unless all of your fish were 4" you couldnt even get a dwarf. If it were me you could add a wrasse. Harlequin tusks and bird wrasse are awsome. They are coral safe, but will eat inverts. Also, these wrasses are not as aggresive as others. You could also do pretty much any trigger with a good skimmer. Again not invert safe but coral safe. Let us know what u think!!!!!

Idk, mines smaller than that but its a FOWLR. You should definately be fine. I have a 220 skimmer and a fuge also. I have almost nothing in my fuge but its growing. Sumps also for a 220.
