The Wrasse will compete with the Mandarin for food. Basslets are nice, I would reccomend the Royal Gramma. Maybe get another Clown? HTH!

I would say a Basslet. I love mine. The color on these fish in my opinion is outstanding. Nice personality and picks its territory big time. Good luck on your next purchase. Remember QT. I am sure that you do. But just thinking of your best interest.

No problem, I do have a QT,but I have not used it yet,Reason being,The ocilaris was first in the tank and the Mandarin was next and you dont have to QT them because they wont do well... But its setup and ready...

3 blue green chromis. Or pistol shrimp and goby pair. Got your cleanup crew already in place? If not, time for some crabs, snails, & shrimp.

i have a bi color angel in my 75 and it is awesome. always out and a very active swimmer. he has not nipped any corals yet. i would suggest some sort of dwarf angel. the gramma, basslet and psuedochromis may fight ( they are all the same family ). be careful with that one. it is possible the pseudochromis/basslet may even pick on the bi color blenny. the gramma would be the safest bet with a dwarf angel

good luck
