Good deal. glad you are doing the right thing. far too many of them die due to not having the right things that they need to survive. Awesome fish though, I miss mine madly........

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

I agree with Carey on hawks, they're awesome fish lol. How about a couple different wrasses? Carpenters, Xmas, melanurus are all awesome looking. And there's a ton more

If you havent been to liveaquaria.com now is the time! They have like every fish in the trade listed with tank size and eating habits listed as well. Great website for getting the hang of what you want.

Idols, from what I understand are difficult fish to keep. I think it has to do with their eating habits.

Ok I'll stay away from them and check out the site. I like the looks of the foxface.

New tank

Idols are probably the hardest fish in sw from my research. Eating habits, tank size, diet. Best left in the wild IMO

Edit: oops Carey beat me to it lol

I have a rabbit fish, very similar to the foxfaces, he is a big mooch when it comes to feeding time. lol Very personable fish. Loves seaweed too, just as much as the tangs.
The only warning is that they have venomous spines so you have to be careful handling them. It wont kill you or anything, dont wanna scare you away, lol, but its worth noting.

If you want a moorish idol looking fish you could do heniochus. Same look but so so much easier. They can be a holes though...
