Others may be able to help sex them for you better than I.... But for a third species you may consider the yellow tail Acie. IMO a beautiful fish and a great addition to a community tank. They have an added benefit of being easy to source.

They are very pretty.. Are they purple? That's cool. So I would have yellow, blue, an purple.. I think that would be a good mix. I will have to consider that.

Yeah depending on how the light hits them they may appear more gray at times. They always catch my attention in the tank bc as they move through the tank the colors constantly change. I keep them with labs and a few hongi. Like you I wanted a third species and was thinking socolofi but when I couldn't get my hands on any I picked up the Acie. They have been a nice addition.
