New 180 Gallon Tank

I am about to start up a 180 gal. tank upgrading from a 90 gal. I have 6 Clownfish, 1 Hawkfish, 1 Pajama cardinal, 3 Blue Damsels, 2 Two Striped Damsels, 1 Sailfin Tang, and 1 Yellow Tang. I want to get a Lionfish once I get the tank all good and stuff but what kind can I have with these fish.

Well you have the start of a week's worth of lunch for the lionfish. The tangs may be ok.

Rule # 1. If a fish can fit in the mouth of a larger fish, the smaller fish will be food for the larger.
