Stocking 50 gal

I need some opinions on if this would work or would be too much..

50 gal 30 x 19 20'' high, 50 lbs. LR

I already have a yellow-headed sleeper gobie, lawnmower blenny, and a pair of true perculas.

I am wanting to get a pair of black and white perculas and a small yellow tang. I know the tang would grow, but still if I got it small.

I would be be cautious about mixing too many percs, the newcomers may get beaten up.
Also IMO a 50 gallon is way too small for a tang.
How about a dwarf angel, royal gramma, firefish, etc.
check out our guide for some ideas.

In your other thread, where we discussed the adding of another pair of clowns to your tank,
I mentioned (as did others) that this would be a risky venture. I would consider the tang out of the question as you have a cube tank and virtually no swimming room.
