Need suggestions! New fish for 75 Reef

We have a 75 gallon that we are wanting to add another fish too and looking for ideas on what we should get. We currently have 2 fuzzy dwarf lion fish and 1 snowflake eel. Lots of live rock, 1 Kenya tree, button polyps, 2 mushrooms. I want an open swimmer so the tank doesn't look so empty We were thinking a Tassle filefish but they said it is not reef safe. Thanks!

Love the Hoven's wrasse! It says reef with caution. Do you have experience with them in that area? We have a Kenya tree mushrooms and coco worm.

He is coral safe from my experience and hermit/snail safe. I have had him for about 3months and he is only more bold with his colors since.

I have zoas, Kenya tree, and a hammer. Mine is not aggressive at all but is a very aggressive eater. So cool to watch and very active.

I do not have shrimp though. So can't give adice on that. He also is supposed to eat flatworms and Bristol worms.

I have a lion fish snow flake eel a ****** fish and a clarki clown fish. They all seem to do fine together. The trigger is a neat fish with a personality. The clarki clown fish is hosting a rose bubble anemone which is cool to watch at feeding time, because the clarki shares all his food with the anemone.

I love wrasses because they are always actively swimming, hardy and you can pretty well mix them without issues. The Leopard Wrasse is gorgeous as is the Mystery Wrasse if you can find one at an acceptable price. Just make sure you have a cover because they are notorious jumpers.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure it's just a nickname. I think melenarus is part of the species/genus name.
