I am working on stocking a 5 foot long fowlr (maybe a few coral down the road) Right now I have a blonde naso tang. I am looking for some more fish. I want fish that have personality and are relatively hardy. Here are some of the fish I was thinking about, but am not set on anything.

pearlscale butterfly.
MAYBE another tang, not sure what, I like hippos but ich prone.
flame or multicolor angel, I want one or the other.
larger angel, maybe goldflake or imperator

I am having trouble coming up with ideas. Please give some suggestions as to what would do well together. Also, suggestions on stocking order.

Any of those sound fine. How big is the naso? You would want to take it out and then re-add at the same time with another tang or possible any of them as it might not be to gracious about accepting new comers

Would these fish work in this order?

already have 6" blonde naso. He's not aggresive at all.
2-3" multicolor angelfish
2-3"yellow tang
3-4" juv. emperor angelfish

I would put the yellow tang and multicolor in at the same time.
Does this sound like it will work.
What is the ideal size emperor to get?

Honestly, you may have a problem adding another tang with the Naso already in there. They can be quite aggressive towards new additions.
Imperator angels get up to about 15" long on average. You may also wish to get a smaller adult instead of a juvenile; they're less prone to health problems after metamorphosis.
Also, I know your tank is 5 ft, but how many gallons?
