    Long nose hawk fish, mandarin ( when there's enough pods), dwarf angel like potters or flame, Tomini tang and purple tang also nice additions. The list you have should be fine

    For a 1.2m a Naso will get to big, they need large swimming space!

    Bristletooths are also nice, they also keep algae in check! I would also recommend a small regal they are prone to ws but most tangs are, better option than a Naso. Check out live aquaria nice site to get info on fish species!
