Probably occellaris, but the tank being somewhat small I'd advise against it. If it were a larger tank where they could get away from each other then I'd say okay

Also, I would find the tang a new home. They are advised to be in tanks of a 6ft length or longer, if they are in a small tank not only will they experiencing stunting but also may get ich from being stressed
