Final stocking list... for real this time

OK so this is like my third attempt at picking a final list haha but here it goes!

I have a 135G display with about 175lbs of live rock and a ~50G sump which has a skimmer and soon to have chaeto.

I currently have this in my display tank:

3 domino damsels
1 blue dot goby

I also have a dogface puffer in my QT for about the next 4 weeks then will be adding to the DT.

I also want a picasso trigger (most likely the last to go in.)

I want to add 1 more big fish. I was thinking a small/medium sized angel or a tang.

What suggestions would you all have for my next fish to ad? I will start quarantining it as soon as I put the dogface in the DT.

Thanks!

No love???

Anybody have suggestions for an angel that would work long term in that tank?

I would rather have an angel but I think a yellow tang might be the best choice.

Opinions?

I don't have much experience with larger angels so i won't be of much help there. I would add the trigger last for sure. They are agressive so it is best to have him be the new kid on the block after your other fish have settled in.

I personally would also look at wrasse. They have some great looking wrasse for fish only tanks that are very active and colorful. Some of my favorites are the red corris and the banana wrasse.

The red corris looks like a cool fish, and I do have sand in my DT.

How deep would the sand have to be? Mine is only 1-2" tops.
