I am in the process of setting up a tank (im most likely going to be ordering at least a 50 gallon next week) and i think im just one fish shy of where i want to be. What ive settled on so far is:

pair of ocellaris clowns and anemone
flame dwarf angel
royal gramma
possibly some chromis or a six line wrasse

i want to add a fish that isnt going to be shy and will take up all of that extra "dead" tank space. Preferably something that is decent sized for that size tank.

Any ideas?

Yellow Tangs are ok for 50 gallons, but their personality is a craps-shoot, I have one in my 55g that is fairly shy. I have another in a 29g (not by choice) that is friendly as all heck.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

If you want to add an aggressive and territorial fish like a tang, it should be the last fish added to the tank, otherwise it'll pester the other fish constantly.
