But you will need more LR for ur DT and believe me no matter how much u like it now more rock will make it look better , I have a 55g tank with 60lb of rock and considering more .
You may also want to start considering CUC like a few hermits and snails.
K I'm done now 0_o.
I have considered o flame angel. They are listed as semi aggressive on live aquaria. Has yours ever nipped at other fish

One thing I'm set on is live rock. Unfortunately by lfs has very high rates IMO, 10/lbs. The gobys are also very interesting to watch.
Also ive been thinking of either getting a second t5 fixture or would it be better to just go straight to a LED setup?

For the light if you want to keep corals I would upgrade and get another 2 bulb fixture or get an led one if you have the cash. They run about $150 a panel on ebay.

I also like the idea of chromis. Very cute fish, they school, you can have a bunch of them and they are cheap. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So far for my list is another t5 fixture, cromis/flame angel, and last but not least live rock. I might be thinking of adding as well

My angel is the MOST chill fish ever ! I love him . I also have a clarkie clown who is also " semi - aggressive " but I've watch them swim together and just chill.

My angel just floats about it currents picking at the rocks as he passes by , he is very curious poking through holes in the rock I wouldn't think he could swim through fav fish so far

They are not reef capable I read on here. For dry reef rock the petsmart by me just got in a bunch of rocks they sell. Huge ones are 20 a rock and small are like 5.
