Stocking my 120

I'm setting up my 120 gallon aquarium. I'm breaking down my 50 gallon and will be moving my current fish and was wondering if I have enough room to add a few more.
Currently I have
2 true percula clownfish
4 chromis
1 yellow head goby
1 six line wrass
1 red Snyder goby.
I would like to add to my new tank a blue Atlantic tang and a blue tang (dori). I'm not to sure about getting a blue tang because they get ick easy.
What advice can you give me.
I don't want to over populate my tank. Thanks for your help.

All tangs can get ich easy. The key is to go slow and to not have tangs that look similar to avoid aggression issues.

Do you think the Atlantic blue and the blue tang would fight. The Atlantic blue is a juvenile and is yellow right now. Also do you think adding 2 tangs would be to much for my tank?

If the body types are similar, they will not get along. This goes for all tangs to my knowledge.

I don't think either of those tangs are good for a 120. I vote for yellow, purple, scopus, Even bristletooths like kole, and flame fin.

I was looking at the kole tang. I really like the Atlantic blue. would the Atlantic blue out grow my tank?

Atlantic Blues can get aggressive as they mature. I had one many years ago that I had to remove. I've heard stories from others that had similar experiences.

Wow, that's a bummer. I really like the one at my lfs. I've been keeping my eye on him. My six line is kind of aggressive at times. I'm thinking it would be a good time to add a new fish is when I transfer everything over
