Help me pick a new fish

So I have a 55g reef tank with a starry blenny, fox face and a pair of misbar oscelleris clown fish. I have been wanting to add another fish for a while and am overwhelmed with possibilities. I would like something that stays smaller like 3 inches or less. Reef safe is a must and I would like it to be peaceful. I also want something colorful but not yellow or orange, something to contrast against my current stock i really like the color blue. I would also prefer an active swimmer but that isn't a must but I do have crabs and shrimp so must be invert safe also and prefferably not known as being a carpet surfer. So let's hear suggestions!!!!!!!

Purple fire fish has been one I've considered for a long time. Chalk bass are sweet too. I really like Angels but the "with caution" steers me away.
