What's a lip stick tang ?
Everything I can think of wouldn't be ideally suitable For your tank .
The Foxface Rabbitfish Is a nice fish .but is recommended to be housed in a 70 gal or bigger

You are definitely at a full bio load, and some of those are going to outgrow that tank fast.

The tang and angel are way to large for that tank. I would reccomend taking them back and looking into a reef safe wrasse and maybe a dwarf angel

A lipstick tang is also known as a naso tang. You have two fish that get very large in a 55. I say stocked. You will need to get them a bigger home sooner than a few years. Your emperor angel will probably eat lps corals. For corals try zoas, they come in lots of colors.
