Tang Addition to 180g Tank

I recently moved and upgraded from a 4'x2'x2'120g to a 6'x2'x2' 180g tank.

I have the same tank inhabitants as in the 120g:
-Dejardini Sailfin Tang (Large)
-Yellow Eye Kole Tang (Medium)
-Flame Angel
-Leopard Wrasse
-Blue Chromis x2
-Mandarin Dragonet
-Black and white Ocellaris Clownfish x2

I'm looking to add a brightly colored, fast moving tang to my tank. I think with the space available now, I can add one without issue of cramping. I do not have a ton of live rock, so all the fish love the swimming space.

I was thinking of getting a Powder Brown Tang, I like the look and there is one at the LFS that has been there for a couple weeks and looks good (only about 3 inches right now)

Was also thinking about Blue Hippo Tang, but would be my second choice.

Thinking of sticking with Acantharus or Paracantharus, since I have Zebrasome and Ctenochaetus.

They have a chocolate tang that is interesting as well

If I get the PBT, and I make sure it is eating before I get and quarantine before going in, anything else to consider?

Stats: 180 g Mixed SPS/LPS reef tank, 30 gallon sump, live rock, GFO\Carbon, AquaMaxx AM250 in-sump skimmer, felt filter socks, cleaning crew
