Suggestions on Stocking?

So far things have gone very well in my reef tank. Everyone is healthy. I continue to do my weekly 20% wc and the water quality is great. I don't have many creatures in my tank but would like to add another. I'm was thinking of adding a kole tang but was wondering what other fish I might be able to add? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have a yellow tang and 2 clown fish now.....and many other soft corals. Thanks again!

Sorry about that Usually I do not look up info as it's just another screen to pop up...I have enough multitasking going on as is lol.

You could probably get away with the kole, but I wouldn't add any other tangs from there on. Other fish possibilites include, anthias, cardinals, dwarf angels, wrasses, gobies blennies, etc.

I would be careful of the dwarf angels as they are known coral nippers. I had to evict my two.
I like your choice of the yellow eyed Kole tang. I had one with my yellow for many years.

I ventured out to the lfs and picked up a lawnmower blenny and the yellow eyed kole tang (along with yet another large piece of frogspawn). I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope that everyone plays nicely.
