That's 150 gallons right? I would buy a powered brown tang or maybe a group of yellow tang.

I wouldnt put too many tangs in there, it's only a 5 foot tank. The gallons don't matter as much as the swimming room does.

I'd say maybe a yellow and another tang of your choice, but not the blue's.

here's a link that has some tangs listed and their requirements.

Surgeonfish: Tang Fish, Yellow Tangs and other Surgeons

Hope that helps.

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

Any of the bristle-tooth (Ctenochaetus.sp) tangs like Kole, tomini, 2-spot, Chevron, etc. Ctenochaetus
A yellow would also be fine.
