155 gallon stocking help!

Recently i acquired a 155 gallon tank and i want to set up a reef tank. So i need stocking ideas as to what to put in it for both corals and fish. It has great lighting 200 pounds of live rock and a 30 gallon sump. Any help is much appreciated!

What are you really looking for? I know I'd get a tang or two in there...but my personal feelings on which tangs might not fit what you want to look at everyday.

Ok i like the yellow tangs and the powder blue tangs i believe i also like the hippo tang. So if we could build around the yellow tang and hippo tang that works for me because i have no idea what to get. Also i really like soft corals i like the way they move in the current

A yellow and hippo shouldn't be a problem. How about checking out the fairy or flasher wrasses?

And I would upgrade to something bigger than 30 gallon sump. If you like movements Duncans are fast grower, hammers, frog spawn, and torches also supply good movement.
The 4 I listed are also easy to care for, fast-growing and easy to frag and none require very intense lighting.
