As much as I want an Achilles tang, I wouldn't do it. They go on hunger strikes and are just hard to maintain. Most everyone I have talked to say to stay away. They have a heavy price tag for a fish that may not last long. Perhaps a fish better left in the ocean.
The purple tangs are supposed to be very aggressive and should be added last. I'm waiting on mine. Lol.
Kole tangs are one of the hardier tangs that I know of
I've never had a mimic yellow so can't say much there
Powder browns are very prone to ick. Perhaps getting a larger one with a better immune system would be best.
Just remember with tangs that you need ALOT of caves. The more tangs the more caves you will need.
