Help me choose a new fish for my 75 reef!

I recently lost my bicolor foxface and I need another fish for my 75 reef. I have a pair of black saddleback clowns, a coral beauty, tomini tang, 2 green chromis, a fire shrimp, and a cleaner shrimp. Has to be reef safe, I have a bunch of corals. Was thinking about another foxface, but might go with another idea if something strikes me. Give me some ideas!

didn't even know there was such thing as a bicolor fox face, they look awesome. As far as suggestion goes I would say a blenny or goby. I have a starry blenny and he is very cool, gboy and nunu have an engineer goby and that thing is sweet.

I could do the mystery, would just have to see them and compare to see if the difference is worth it.

Midas Blenny. Gives my tank a whole new look. They swim like an eel.

I vote for a fairy or flasher wrasse. That group of fish is my favorite. Look at Carpenter's, McCosker's, and orange back, and exquisite to name a few I like.

You might also consider cardinalfish. I like Bangaii and PJs. There are several other species out there as well.

Unfortunately, I lost my bicolor. No trace of him. I am thinking maybe my carpet nem is a stone cold killer. I am missing 3 of my 5 chromis and my bicolor foxface.
