Sorry I did not pay attention to your location. Not a good idea to buy a fish based on future plans. Some requirement are based on size and some on the actual fish. I would say avoid the sailfin.
I can give you the sale link

If it allows a local purchase in AU, then go for it. ;p

Got this off there site:
International orders will incur actual freight cost. The USPS Express shipping will be utilized for international orders; cost will vary.
Ordering just one fish would probably not be worth it. If you wanted corals or multiple fish I would look into it.

It's not worth it. AU has very strict quarantine laws and it's expensive. Ah well, guess I will have to find another fish.. what about purple tangs? I wanted a colour other than purple as my angel is mostly purple.

no tang, except POSSIBLY the yellow and the kole, would be suitable for your tank. Even small ones need room to swim.

aren't chromis a member of the damsel family, and as such might fight with my yellow tail damsel?

Chromis are not aggressive. Like Hara said check out liveaquaria.com. It will give you info on the fish temperament, special requirements, etc. with nice pictures.

Correct Chromis are a member of the damsel family, but unlike other damsels are relatively peaceful. I have a school of 5, but with your current load I would not get more than 3. Is getting rid of the yellow tail an option? It may be aggressive toward chromis or other smaller fish.

Otherwise I think the damsel might be a problem for anything other than a yellow tang anf I would wait on a yelow tang if that is what you want.
