Another tang? No tangs and you really shouldn't put a dwarf angel in a 20 either and definitely not one of the big angels. Check liveaquaria.com for fish selection, you can search by tank size

Well that's the extreme bare minimum for a yellow (don't be surprised if people chime in on that) but all the large angels are to big for either of those tanks, you could do one of the dwarfs in the 55 though but you may have aggression issues with the yellow.

I suggest checking out liveaquaria.com for tank size recommendations. Putting fish in too small a tank almost always leads to problems with health. IMO, there is no Tang suitable for a 20g. Most wrasses are out too. No Angels either, not even Pygmy angels. I would stick to nano tank fish. Gobies, cardinals, bennies, etc.

If you plan to get corals, and especially an anemone, be sure you have proper lighting. Many corals, and all Nems, require more than basic lighting.

Same advice...liveaquaria has lots of fish and lots of info on appropriate tanks sizes, compatibility, etc. With a 20g, your options are limited. Look through what they have, come back with ideas and I'm sure you will get feedback on what would work.
