themarinecenter.com (overpriced IMO, though some people love em)
Cant speak for the others, but right now I know Phishy Business has several Really Really nice Interruptus Angels (2 adult males, and maybe 1 juvie left. ask about the males, since they arent listed on the website), Arcuatus/Bandit Angel (who actually eats), and a lot of more unusual wrasses (pyles, hooded, some gorgeous pink-margins, a pair of balteatus), a few cool butterflies including a nice size Tinkers that eats like a hog. Tang wise, there is a smallish Black Tang.
Other rare fish that sometimes make it into the hobby with at least Some regularity...
Gem Tang($$$!), Conspiculatus Angel, Africanus Angel, Resplendent Angel

If the tank you are asking about is 150g then I would stay away from the larger angels. There are still several other smaller fish that are just as rare like:
From time to time liveaquaria has C. Lancelatus which are currently the "it" fairy wrasse. The supermales are stunning. They have been going for around $330 for the males and $130 for the subadults.
A Pair Rhomboids or Lineatus Wrasses would also be nice.
It sounds like it is that time of year for Joculator Pygmys to start showing up. They will run you anywhere from $800 - $1200 depending on the store.
Like everyone said above, Interruptus are also available right now and they usually run $1000-$1300. The juve. that Phishybusiness has right now is a true find.
Respendants are pretty much unobtainable right now because RCT is not longer breeding them and they are not being collected from the wild.
You risk losing corals with any butterfly. I have kept Mitratus, Tinkers, Wrought Irons, Bannerfish, and Semilarvatus and they were all pretty destructive so I would not recommend them if you have LPS and softies.
