I wanted the Achilles but that is the most difficult of all tangs and I am just concerned about putting him in with 3 other tangs

About the tangs i have heard that purple tangs can be quite agressive.... Not sure if that one would be on my list.
No problem, I knew after I posted I was going to catch some grief without posting my main tank holding. Thanks for the heads up on the purple tang, I might go a different direction on that one as its my least favorite for the price.

Ya honestly I wouldn't even do an Achilles in anything under 300 gallons cause they get massive and got a bit of an attitude along with their size. Beautiful fish though. Honestly nothing against your choice but I don't think chevrons are nearly as striking as other tangs yet they carry a hefty price tag.

Two clown
Two chromis
1 coral angel

All juveniles. This is a two month old tank. I won't get them for another 6 weeks as I just had a tang that I didnt quarantine get ich. I am in the process of hypo salinity in the main tank and I have all my invertebrates in my QT.

I am going to do a reef but wanted to get fish in first. I plan on also adding 2 wrasses and some Anthias. I do plan on doing this in stages over 6 months so no rush on the others. I just felt it woul be better to add all my tangs at once.

That's perfect then still a empty slate pretty much.. personally if I was doing 4 tangs I'd pick the blonde naso, an orange shoulder, a powder blue, and a kole yellow eye. Would be a lot cheaper but its all opinion so get what you like
