Stocking question for new tank plan

I'm starting to plan my next tank, and it'll be my first SW, mainly because I love Pajama Cardinals. I've decided on a FOWLR set up and would like some feedback on what I'm thinking so far...

4 or 5 Pajamas, a pair of Banggai Cardinals, a few shrimp and either a Tang or a pair of Clownfish. From what I've read they're compatible.

For this, should I plan on a 40 or a 55 gallon tank... or bigger?

feel free to comment on the stocking plan too... I'm new to SW

You'll want to pick pajama or bangai, I believe the 2 different types will fight in the same tank.

Depending on the tang you want you are looking at a 75g tank pretty much minimum. Though you could look at angelfish which will be fine in a 40 or 50g tank.

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

Thanks for the input! I'll go with the Pajamas... and Carey, I'll look more into Angelfish - thanks for the suggestion. I don't think I can fit a 70g, especially long, in my space, but I can try looking at a different room, too!

Thanks- more questions to come
