We are going to know more information about your tank.

Size, how long has the tank had fish (or any life) in it?
What life is in it, what kind of large fish are you looking for?

Fishstock wise your at or past your limit already.

A Blue Tang gets way to large for a 55.

What type of lighting do you have? To keep an anenome you will need reef tank lighting. Atleast 200 watts on that 55 gal.

What is the reading on your ammonia and nitrites? Your tank is ready when both are at 0 any reading and you should not add fish or inverts to the tank.
