stocking....again hate these questions lol.

Ok I have a 180 gal tank attempting to go reef but with an emphasis on fish. My current stock is:
1. Foxface lo 4 in
2. Niger trigger 2.5 in(had for yr hasn't touched a coral or invert)
3. Naso tang 2 in
4. Copperband 2.5 in
5. Falco hawkfish 2 in
6. Firefish dartfish 2in
7. Maroon clown 2in plus one at 1 in in fuge trying to pair.
8. Red fin fairy wrasse 1.5 in.

Looking to add a few more fish one or two tangs (achillies and maybe dejardini) plus a few smaller fish I.e. wrasses, cardinals, jawfish, goby's etc any suggestions on the cooler/unique smaller fish.

You may have trouble with some of the fish because even if they have been kept with inverts and corals, they could change at any time. Just ask anyone who has gotten a reef destroyed by a dwarf angel.

Some options that I would look into are Midas Blennies, Chalk Bass, and Kole Tangs.

90 Gallon Reef - 3 Blue-Green Chromis, 2 Ocellaris Clowns, 1 Kole Tang, 1 Midas Blenny, 1 Longnose Hawkfish, 1 Zebra Dartfish, 1 Algae Blenny, 1 Six-Line Wrasse
29 Biocube Reef - 1 Chalk Bass, 2 Black and White Clownfish, 1 Yellow Watchman Goby, 1 Fire Goby

I am aware of that once one starts that fish will be out of the tank. I have had my niger with shrimp crabs corals for a yr now so far so good and the hawkfish and foxface for a little over 2 months and same with them.
