Another observation, given the height of your reef structure, which is small, you will be more limited than normal on how many fish you can keep before you begin to see aggressive behaviors. If you were to say, double the height of that live rock structure, then you would have a much easier time mixing fish.

It really depends on your goal. What fish are you interested in?

great fish... don't confuse with the BiColor Pseudochromis, which is the same color but very territorial.

120 litres according to the Google calculator is 31 gallons... WAY too small for a tang.

Also we generally go by the rule of 1 pound per gallon of live rock... that would be around 14 kilos. Nothing wrong with having more though!
