You can do tangs in a 150g. The angel would depend on what type of angel, and also, angels and butterflies are not always reef safe, so those might be risky.
I love my starry blenny, he's a big boy at 4 1/2-5", and he's funny. I saw a ruby head wrasse the other day at LFS
, was about 4", and was SO pretty, but my tank's too small for him. If you're gonna have a lid, there are some beautiful wrasses that get decent sized.
I have Kessil LED
light. Love it. I've read people having great luck with taotronics LEDs on their reef tanks too.
I like conchs and Nassarius for the sandbed, astrea and banded trochus for the glass and rocks and scarlet reef hermits cuz they say they're less likely to kill snails and each other than the red or blue legged hermits.
