Hi Jordan,

Welcome to AA! To be honest, it all starts by doing research and also most importantly deciding on what livestock you'd like to have in your tank.

Read up on the articles here on AA and figure out what you'd like to keep in your tank. We'd be happy to help you with specifics once you've got a better idea of what type of tank you want.

Before you buy some tangs, make sure you have a tank large enough for them. Most tangs require a 6ft long tank. The bristletooths can get by with a 75G tank (4 ft long i think).

What's the length of your tank?

You could keep a bristle tooth/kole tang.
