You want something active and cool looking what about a wrasse? They swim around and you can get smaller varieties that will be ok in your tank long term. I personally wouldn't put a foxface in, they get way to big.

You could do a six line or possum wrasse. The fairys and flashers need a longer tank IMO. Wrasses love to swim for the most part.

I already have a green coris wrasse. I was thinking of switching him for something nicer. I think ill forget the foxface for now. I will probably try a flame angel but im scared it will nip at my corals. Any other sugestions of cool looking fish that could be in my 35 gallon? Im ready to take the risk of adding a rated 50 gallon fish in there as i will be moving to a bigger tank in 1-2 years. Current stock:
2 occ clowns
2 blue green chromis
1 green coris wrasse
1 midas blenny

I was also planning on removing mychro

I was also planning on getting rid of chromis and replacing them by 2 different species of nano fish tobadd more variety in the tank. What could i trade them for? And i dont wanna sound arguing but i dont really get why some people say that i could try the flame which is rated 70 galls like the fox but not the fox face. There are 70 gallon tanks that are as long as mine only deeper and higher, the fish will only be able to to swim 32" back and forth in the 2 cases. Do you know what i mean?

Fox faces get close to a foot, flame angels get 4". Big difference

If you want ideas on stocking check out liveaquaria.com. They have a wide variety of fish, you can see pictures and all the details right there including minimum tank sizes. If you like your coral and have concerns about an angel nipping them why get an angel? There are so many cool and beautiful fish out there that are reef safe. Firefish are small and very pretty, you could always look at a goby and shrimp pair also and these are just 2 options out of many. Like I said there are so many other options that it doesn't make sense to take a risk.

He might outgrow it or he might not. Is it worth it?
