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

How long has the tank been up and running? Have you considered some corals?

About a week but it's fully cycled. Yes I was thinking corals but wasn't really sure which would be able to survive with the lighting in the biocube.

I have the 29g cube myself.

I for sure would look at some zooanthids, very colorful, easy to keep and realtively cheap. Mushrooms are alsos a great choice, for color as well as they don't need very much light. have you looked liveaquaria.com and checked out their corals? They have beginner packs that you can look at to see what kinds are recommended.

I haven't taken the plunge on corals in my cube yet, I have alot of other tanks going so it gets neglected sometimes. But it is perfectly capable of keeping corals as far as light. I wouldnt get into a birdsnest or any other SPS or hard corals though.

I just looked at liveaquaria.com and was wondering which type of corals would clownfish host? Anemone?

Ahh I see where youre going but I hate to tel ya, I don't think a nem is gonna work in that cube. The lighting for one, and the age of the tank. You need to have a stable tank for at least about 9 months or so.

On another note though, clowns won't automatically host anything, it's all a crap shoot. lol

Clowns have been known to quite frequently host corals but thats not alwasy good for the coral or the fish. My clowns were hosting an elegance coral, real expensive too, and it was awesome but they eventually almost killed it. i had to give it away. :-(
