Fish selection

I lost my Naso that I was QTing to disease. I really loved that fish, however, I see two more I really like as well. This will be my big fish for the tank. I am choosing between a Sohal Tang, a Naso and an orange shoulder tang (Ancanthurus olivaceus). Opinions anyone? In my gallary there is a pic of how much space I have in my tank with all the rock, however both the front and back is clear for swimming space.

Personally, I would go with the Naso. Personal preference.

Hey Kurt! Did ya see the pic in my gallery? I got about 73lb's of LR from Liverocks.com and let me tell, the place was so cool! Anyways I got that rock making kit too and now I have no need for it...the tank is full as far as I'm concerned. O well, I want to make this huge cave rock anyways and see how it turned out, if anything I can cure it and sell it after I am done. I got 2 mantis shrimp though : (. They don't seem to be bothering anything yet. Got a trap, but wouldn't you know it, I bought the broken one . I haven't had a chance to take it back yet.

I not sure, a lot of people have naso's, not many people own sohals, I think. I would pick the sohal just for something different. The Sohal also has side color and the stripes are kind of pretty. Both are bound to be beautiful center fish with great personalities. Have fun!
