I have a 210 fish only tank, no coral. Current stock is the following in order of when I added them

2 clowns
Melanurus wrasse
Coral beauty
Blue throat trigger
Foxface
4 green chromis
Emperor angel
Blue hippo
Blonde naso (in qt, got beat up by purple)
Gold rim
Blue eye bristletooth
Purple (he’s gone though)

purple has since been brought back to LFS

looking at lyretails, a couple more wrasses and a couple more tangs.

With an Imperator and several established tangs it’s likely you won’t be able to add any other fish without risking a couple losses. What are the dimensions of the tank?

That was a lot of large tang in an 210. I think that may be why you were having problem. It may be best to just settle as is and not adding any more tang.
