IMO swap the yellow tang for a yellow mimic tang. A lot more peaceful and I think they are cool how they change .but yellow tanga are still cool. Just an edit the scopas and the yellow are from the same family too so they may fight

And the yellow of course is the coolest of all.
You've picked some mid water level swimmers, any idea if you want any perchers or fish that occupy the sandbed?
I do like the Randall's Goby, any more suggestions on perching or lower level fish? Thanks.

I haven't read the rest of the posts, but would a Flame Hawkfish work? I love mine.

I like the Mimic's too! I was originally thinking that if I got a small Yellow, and a medium to large Scopas, there would be minimal aggression. So many options, lol.

What about a shrimp goby like the pink spotted that I have. they get a bit large so it would be great for such a big tank. Check out the misc. fish section on live aquaria you might find one thats rare and cool. lol

Do you plan on small ornamental shrimp? i believe that is one thing that a flame hawk will eat in a reef tank, mine is pretty cool and swims back and forth all day.

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

Depends on the type of goby. I have 5 goby's in my 20g and they all get along fine. i would try to get ones that look different than each other. For instance I have 2 neon goby's yellow clown goby, green clown goby and the engineer goby. None really look like each other and I think thats a factor in why they dont fight.

My 60g is gonna be all micro and small fish so anyone else know about the goby or blenny limit?

Thanks! How do you like your Convict Goby?

I was also wondering if I could keep any Clown Gobies in this tank. I would just worry that they wouldn't get enough food since they are so small.
