    How much are you willing to spend?

    Corals?

    Lots of live rock or only a little?

    Interested in small, medium or big fish?

    Easy, moderate or difficult to keep?

    Answer those questions and we can go from there

    I would probably go for either one or two of the smaller Zebrasoma sp. tangs (Yellow, Scopas or Purple).

    I would also consider some bread and butter fish such as clowns and gobies etc.

    However, I wouldn't hesitate to consider a couple of butterflies when your tank is 6-12 months old. 'Easier' species such as Raccoon, Vagabond or saddleback butterflies.

    I would love to have 2 tangs , a yellow and a purple but how would they get along with each other in a 100 G tank ? could their be a aggression problem ?

    My tank is roughly 110g and I have both a yellow and a purple

    The yellow was already established when I added the purple and there was a hell of a lot of aggression from the yellow.

    Everything settled down after the first week but there still is the occasional chasing between the two.

    The purple ended up getting a bad case of ich but he pulled through. Fish from the Red Sea are extremely hardy and should easily pull through things like ich

    I wouldn't add the clowns until your tank is mature enough to support an anemone.
    Tangs would make a great addition. You may also want to look at some wrasse species, perhaps a blue damsal, a small angel like a coral beauty, perhaps a goby to stir up the sand as well.

    Don't forget the cleanup crew!

    was thinking about a blue damsal but a number of people have told me to stay clear of them due to their aggressive bahaviour , do they do best in a small group or by themselves ?

    You can have a couple blue damsals, but you have to introduce them at the same time. They also tend to work best when introduced last to a tank, though it isn't an absolute requirement.
    They are on the more aggressive side when it comes to territory, but certainly not the more aggressive of species.

    An anemone is not a requirement for keeping clowns. There is no need to wait till the tank is mature enough for an anemone to add clowns. Personally, the clowns would be the first thing I would add.
