Congrats on your first SW! I hope ever thing goes well!
Also, I liked the Tangs you mentioned, my favorite of them all would have to be the Yellow Tang.

Thanks! So far, so good. Just waiting the cycle out.
Yellow tangs are really cute.

Ended up ordering the fish from freshmarine as LA was out of stock. Hopefully it goes well, I've never shopped from them before and I've come to definitely trust LA.
I ordered three small sgt majors, 1 emerald crab, and 2 hermit crabs.

Yellow tangs are awesome. But IMO they are tank bullies. Mine, and others that I have read, pick on other tangs and mine even picked on my bannerfish as well. I even have a few not so pg-13 names for him at times.

Thanks redsea! I'm really excited, I just hope they arrive safely!
I wouldn't have thought yellow tangs to be tank bullies, they look so skiddish! But then again, looks are decieving, especially as far as fish are concerned.
We still haven't decided on tangs haha.

Maybe look at the blonde naso tang, the lieutenant tang, the Sail fin tang, and the bristle tooth. White cheek and orangeshoulder and doctor fish (type of tang). Those are some of my favorites

Thanks for the tang suggestions! I've revised my stocking plans and this is what I've come up with:

Sgt Major Damselfish (x3)
Kole Tang
Whitecheek Tang
Harlequin Tusk
Picasso Trigger

Where does that put my stocking capacity at? Could I comfortably fit another similarly sized fish (6"+)?

Also my damsels and inverts will be arriving tomorrow morning so I'll be sure to post pictures!
