New 55 gal fish?

Ok well I just finished setting up my new 100 gal and if is completely Open and ready for stock and wanted some opinions I will be putting 3-4 dispar anthias in there and they are 2-3 in and 4 green chromis that are 1-3 in. Ok now I want one big reef safe fish I was looking at ether a spotbreast angel or a lieutenant tang but what are your opinions? Also want some kind of really cool bottom fish like a goby of jaw fish of some kind thanks.

Yah I was most likely only going to take 3 anthias from 180 any way but I knew that the tang was over kill but I found one site that said it was ok for a 75 so I think that just got me to exited and wanted me to try to pull if off. But I also have a 100 gal that I have do you think that it would be a good fit for him because I kind of really want one. And yes I know you are asking your self " Getting the anthias from his 180?" yah I have a ton of anthias in my 180 and want to move them out to stock it more with different fish so that is why I got the 55 so I could pull some fish from all of my tanks and put them in there so I can stock the bigger ones differently. The chromis come from the 100 gal so, now you know the whole story.

Ok so now just picture a 55 with 3 dispar anthias and 4 green chromis so now 1 big fish -tang, angel, or a fox face possibly. Now one small bottom fish do not want a mandarin because do not want to put that much work in to it but goby, dart fish, or blennies. Any suggestions?

Not sure where you saw it said that it would work for the tang in a 75 gal but that is 100% wrong.... And definitly not a 55. The rest should be ok....you should get a yellow head jawfish

Yah the site I saw was deffinetly not right but yah a yellow headed jaw fish would be cool actually now that i think about it my lfs sells blue spot jaw fish for 75 I don't now about you but to me that sounds like a deal would It be ok in a 1 in sand bed?
