Suggestions on fish?

So a recent upgrade (58 gallon to 120 gallon) has me at a crossroad on which fish, if any, to add to the new tank.

Current stock list:
Lawnmower Benny
Midas Benny
Coral beauty
Yellow coris wrasse
Mandarin ( eats frozen and pellet)
And 4 tank raised clowns ( soon to be a mated pair of SA black ice clowns)

I would love a tang but even for a short term while its young ( or till another upgrade) would be unfair to the fish.
I was thinking about reef chromis or possibly cardinals.

Would love some input from anyone with an idea.

If the yellow coris wrasse gets as big as the red coris wrasse then its a bad idea! Haha they get huge! I dont think i would add multiple pairs of clowns in that small of a tank but it has been done before

This is about the 58 gallon ^^^ idk what you ment about the 120 sorry...

I upgraded to the 120. The wrasse and 2 clowns came with the tank I bought.

Um, if the tang is 6' long you could easily get a variety of tangs (not more than one, you can choose from species though), and if its 4' (which I know its atleast) you could definitely get a tomini or kole tang.

How long is your tank? If it is 6 feet you can have any tang you want! Haha 2 clown pairs will be ok in a big tank like that and so will the coris wrasse! Maybe get a foxface fish or a butterfly for the bigger tank?

My 58 was up for almost 2 years and the 120 was up about the same. They got combined when I bought the 120 setup.
The tank is only 4' long

I had looked at a kole but with 350 lb of rock in the display I fear it won't have as much room to swim around as it should.
