Best purple fish??

My fiance likes the color purple and wants to get a purple fish for my tank. What is the coolest purple fish out there for under $50 that could fit in a 30 gallon reef with shrimp.

TIA,
Josh

I'd go with Atari's dottyback recommendation - AKA the Orchid dottyback. May consider a male and female. They are the most peaceful - less territorial of the dottybacks.
