New fish to get

I have an 80 gallon saltwater tank with sump and 2 powerheads (I'll post pics for info)
I am looking for another fish That is cool and pretty not any damsels though. I have had an emperor angel and powder blue tang, which I loved except for that they both died from ICH. I am wanting a fish( preferably a tang) that will not get ich.
I have a cleaner shrimp
2- 3 stripe damsels
2- blue damsels
Velvet damsel
3 beaugregories
Snowflake eel
Cleaner wrasse
And a Blenny
They are all small (under 2 inches) and the beaugregories are about a 1/2-2 inches and I caught them in the wild
Thanks

Powder blues are very tough and that tank is generally to small for them. Some good tangs for that tank that are much hardier would be a kole, tomini, or yellow. However you are very close to if not stocked. May want to trade in some damsels before you get another fish.

They are demons lol. If you found a way to get rid of them it would open up stocking to some much cooler fish. But yeah for tangs I really like kole tangs.

Any kind of Brustletooth Tang (Kole, Tomini, two Spot, etc) should work if you want a Tang. Getting a Yellow, as suggested above, is a bad idea. They need larger or you will likely have the same issue with stress.The Emperor and Powder Blue would not have worked with your tank. Much too small, which causes stress, which often leads to the results you got.

If you want an Angel, look at any of the Dwarfs (coral Beauty, Flame, etc) or even Pygmys (Flameback or Cherub).

I see the possibility of future issues with the eel and smaller fish that you have now. Those could end up being expensive snacks.

That's why he's almost 2' long! Morays love to eat.
