If it were me I'd get 2 koralia 1400's and 1 or 2 1050's or even another 1400.

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

If you have minimal rock you might be good with just the 2 1400's. I would only be concerned because of the depth, you want no dead spots on the sandbed or rocks.

Are you going to corals or just staying with the fish only?

I was originally going with a fowlr, but I realize I can make some money to put back into my tank by fragging an propagating corals/anemones. plus it looks a lot cooler and natural
