Also think about getting an African Leopard Wrasse, also called Blue Star Leopard Wrasse. It's definitely top 5 fish on my list.

How about a fairy wrasse? They generally stay relatively small and are awesome colors.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh i know they are excellent pest control! I used to have a sunrise that was a menace. If i did get one it would be between those 2 though but i think im gonna go with a wrasse.

Still debating on my next fish... Anyone with a blackcap basslet? And would it get along with a wrasse or possibly a dottyback? Or maybe a wrasse with a dottyback?

For sure a wrasse. There is a strong chance you will end up with two fish that like to dig sand if you get a black cap Basslet and a dottyback which means not as much activity. Hence a wrasse plus Basslet or dottyback would be my pick.

Dottybacks can be somewhat nasty, mine had to be moved to my 125g as he killed a fish in my 29g and almost killed another. Mine is pretty active though, always out and about.
