Adding RED color fish to my system.

I want to add some RED color fish to my system what are the good choices that you would recommend? My tank is a 132g 6 footer with a yellow tang, 10 chromis, 1 o. clown, 1 bicolor blenny, 1 twinspot goby and a cleaner wrasse.

-I dont want fish that is not compatible or will create problem with my current stockings.
-I dont want coral nibblers because it could be a reef tank later on. Currently FOWLR.
-I dont want predatory fish which could kill inverts.
-I dont want fish that need to be fed very often.
-I want fish that is easy to keep.
-I dont want aggressive fish.

Could anyone help me with the choices?

There are a few, check that website and let us know what you find interesting. It is hard to tell you all the red fish, since there are so many, that list should get you started.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I was going to suggest the sixline wrasse. Its a great fish.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Thanks roka, I thought of anthias for red color but they need to be fed often which is one of the stated conditions I don't like. Any other suggestion?
