A pair of mandarins will need a lot of live rock to support pods id wait until the tank is up and running at 1 year The yellow tang will out grow a 72 gal very fast better to find another yellow fish maybe a lemon peel.

Shouldn't have 2 dwarf angels in one tank; they'll likely fight. And as a side note: the angels and butterfly may eat your reef.

Ya I'm not having a lot of coral and I already have the Pygmy angel (which is an inch or so) and doesn't touch any corals but I've herd the butterflies are 50/50 and even if I put the 2 Angels in at the same time will they still fight as much
