    how well established is your tank? those 3 fish will get fairly big so I'd definatly lose 1. I would suggest drop the POWDER BROWN as they need pretty big tanks in the big picture. I have one but I'm upgrading as we speak. This is just my 2 cents as I havn't owned a RABBIT fish or a BUTTERFLY.

    I agree with Johnny.
    Drop the tang. Particularly the powder browns and blues need a 150gal + aquariums to thrive. These guys love to swim.

    If you want a tang, try a Kole tang or Yellow for your 77 gal.

    2-3 years and they'll be too big. Keep in mind also, the copperband can be a tricky fish to keep at first. Have a well established tank for those. The foxface can be the same but a little easier.

    Just my 2 cents worth...
    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    I dont think placing a single tang in your tank is a problem at all.

    Mind you, I think the advice here is solid:thumb:

    You may want to consider a yellow, or purple. You may consider others, but only with a plan to move them in a couple of years. I would avoid this personally.

    Cheers,
