As far as another tang, it's risky no matter how u do it because purples are pretty mean. If you are dead set on it go with a smaller one.
I just added a small blue hippo tang to my tank and it turns out my Sailfin is keep watching of the little guy.

Saltwater rules can be tricky!

IMO you could do a lion fish, however understand that you need to get a dwarf lion, and that even still you may loose some of your CUC. I just lost a peppermint shrimp when it was molting to my lion.

They do make a really cool addition to your tank though.

Question: is this a reef tank? B/c I think the butterfly's that were suggested will pick at polyps.

Anthias are nice or a blenny maybe a firefish a goby

No butterflies or angels in a reef they are coral pickers a lionfish well fed and bought small will learn to eat only what you feed him in most cases but dont be surprised if when it gets big you find your chromises missing

Dwarf lionfish would be better than volitans the latter get big

lots and lots of waste for a reef tank. and your chromis would certainly be at risk.

Agreed...

with a lion fish you have to be ok for anything to not be there. The way I was told to approach it was that if it can get it into its mouth it will. Now this may not be true but if you approach it this way you won't be disappointed.

Sorry if hijacking the thread. How many is a "school" with cardinals?
