The hippo gets way to big for that tank and the flame and coral beauty will fight. Pick either the flame or the coral beauty.

As soon as you get it... Don't buy a fish unless you have the tank for it's full size. Your gonna run into ich issues again if you try a hippo in that tank. You would need at least a 180 for a hippo tang.

A tang in to small of a tank will stress. When it becomes stressed it's immune system lowers and ich can then
Take over. Tangs are notorious ich magnets especially in smaller tanks.
