A Red Sea Purple Tang is hard to beat....A Regal Angel is my favorite...And Ovecourse the Flame and Coral Beauty Dwarfs....all of which I own....lol even the hippo tang.....I think its the contrast of colors and compatability thats the real challenge in choosing fish...

I really like Sohal Tangs, and the Interruptus Angel is really nice looking. The Starry Blenny is a great looking smaller sized, reef safe fish

Whilst angels immediately come to mind eg regal, majestic, blueface, emperor, flame, potters etc, the standout for me has always been the powder blue tang.
The light blue with yellow and white is stunning. Add to that its energetic swimming and brazenness makes it an all around winner for me.

Here's one of my puppys. This guy begs for food like a trigger!!
He is close to 8 inches in length. That blue devil damsel in front of his mouth there is pretty close to if not more than 1.5 inches.
Most docile tang i have owned. He dont take crap, But he is not evil like my last sohal. I dunno if he will change over to adult colors. He looked like he was going to for a bit turned all grey and the second half darkened up, and that was it he reverted back since and its been a couple mos.
He is going to be a tank buster!!

A lot of great fish there. Now, if we could only get a tank big enough to house them all, make them all get on and hate the taste of corals we would have a TOTM for sure.
Maybe this will be my next project after finishing my 'Fish Whisperer' course.
