He has a lawnmower blenny, usually two blennys won't get along in the same tank. However, given the size of his tank, they may establish territories far enough apart to avoid fighting.

Have you considered some small schooling fish like chromis? They aren't that pretty on their own, but seeing them move as a group is cool.

I'd say a small school of anthias.

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

Japanese borbonius anthias is an option, if money isn't an issue. My LFS has them for 250 a piece. lol

Send a message via ICQ to ezy33
A Midas Blenny, Longnose Hawkfish or a reef safe wrasse would be my choice.

That's a good question. How many tangs CAN you have? I like your stock list but yeah you could use some Zing to it....

Do you want just one fish or do you like the idea of schooling fish?
