It's really up to what you want to do. Personally, I'd like to do a designer clown tank with 2 picasso clowns, a rose BTA, and a few Acros.

Hmm, if this is your first saltwater tank i would stick with something basic like mentioned above, designer clowns and some coral and inverts. Just to get your feet wet so to speak. LOL Seahorses I hear are a handful to keep and a nem tank, well, I wouldnt go that direction anyways. hehe... they need intense lighting and a mature tank.

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

Anglers are like lions, any of your other fish would be food. They are very aggressive eaters
