New fish and corals to get

I have a 110g reef tank setup with a wet/dry sump and 2 powerheads arranged inside the tank on the sides for water movement.
My fish are:
(2) Racoon butterflyfish (2"-2.5")
(1) One-Spot Foxface (2.5")
(1) 17" Snowflake eel
My Corals are:
Frogspawn
Toadstool
Cabbage
And birdsnest
I have noticed my butterflies to be picking on the birdsnest; which I was not surprised.
Any ideas on new (cheaper) corals
Or new friendly tank-mates to get would be great.
Thanks Click image for larger version

Before getting new fish get a better skimmer, a reef octopus BH-2000 would be good.

Yep, I';d agree with the above. A great skimmer will be needed as you increase the bioload of this large tank with large fish.

Keep an eye on that butterfly, I lost three colonies of palys before I realized that they were being munched on. I dont see any polyps on your list but I would be wary of getting any.

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

A good skimmer is one of the most important pieces of equipment with saltwater tanks. You bought one without knowing the brand?
