What new fish should I get?

My coral and tank is doing well. I had a die off of fish about three months ago. :-(. My Singapore Angelfish (which was eating, and not hiding) died out of no where, than my yellow eye tang got ICH out of no where and died, I believe he passed it on to my blue spotted puffer and it died. Now I am left with just five fish.

1. Yellow Tang
2. Black Clown Fish
3. Coral Beauty
4. Lyretail Wrasse
5. Yellow Fox Face

You can see my whole tank and fish in the picture I added. It's a 120 long.

I am going to add a "Devils Hand" first, and a "Frog Spawn". My "Candy Cane Coral" is doing well so I have all the confidence that a "Frog Spawn" will do well.

I am just wondering what fish to add. I want to add at least three more fish, but I want to make sure they will be compatible. I was thinking a dwarf lion fish, but my fear would be he will cramp the tank and make less swim space for my other fish. I am going to be upgrading, just don't know to what. I want a Blue Hippo Tang, so I think my next and last upgrade will be a 210. It will be at least a year and a half before I upgrade.

Did you do anything to treat the Ich? If not, it will be there waiting for new additions (if they don't have it already), so I would be concerned about that. It just does not appear from nowhere and once it's in your tank, it does not just disappear. It would be nice if it did, but it 'a a parasite and it doesn't work that way.

Assuming that is all under control, I would go with another dwarf angel of some kind, a wrasse and a hawk. All three have so many great possibilities, I'd say leave it up to whatever grabs you.

The dwarf Lionfish idea could work too. They are not very active.

If I were you I would invest first in a lot more live rock (double your current amount) and then look at various rock and cave dwellers like a flame hawkish or a Midas Blenny.

Another wrasse would be a good choice too. I'd stay away from another dwarf angel such as a flame angel as it may fight with your coral beauty.

Sorry, I did not see the CB on the list. I rescind my dwarf angel idea.

You don't have nearly enough rock work for many of the fish you listed to feel safe. This effects their immune systems and opens them up to infections. Almost all tangs will require overhangs and shallow caves to hide and sleep in to feel safe.

Assuming you already have enough filtration you could just get some brs reef saver dry rock. It will provide adequate shelter for your fish without breaking the bank.

That's the kind I got - great price for great rock. I love it Super easy to lock into each other and stack.

And it won't disrupt your cycle at all.
