new fish for 28 gal nano

I am looking for a new fish for my 28 gallon nano since my maroon clown has been moved to another tank. I want one that is colorful and swims around the middle. The fish i currently have in the tank are a tribal blenny (black and stays in his hole mostly), a black clown goby (sits on the rocks and corals), a mandarin, a diamond sandsifter (stays in sand), and a yellow watchman goby (also stays in his home under the rock). As you can see they are all pretty hidden fish.

I was thinking a dwarf angel of some sort. Possibilities: flameback angel, flame angel, lemonpeel angel

any other suggestions? Recommendations on angels? Has anyone had any of these angels?

If it seems too stocked the tribal blenny can be moved to a larger tank (I was planning to do so, but then he seems so happy that I just left him)

The dwarf angel would be a pretty good choice provided there is not any corals in the tank or not going to be any in the future. Coral beauty or flame angel aew some good ones.

yes there is corals but its kinda a hit or miss with the angels isn't it? We have a coral beauty in our large tank (which leaves all the corals alone thankfully), so i don't think ill get another. Has anyone had any of the three i listed in a reef? My friend says he loves his flameback and that is has left his corals alone (i believe his tank is a 30 gal, maybe 40). The flamebacks are quite expensive here though, i purchased one on sale for 80 but it died in the quarentine tank i think he had a rough car ride home sadly. I'd love to get another but it depends on what the full price would be i guess...anywayss more feedback pls

They say hit or miss but I had my dwarfs yrs ago almost wreck my tank. I had to tear the whole tank down. I can only share my experience and that is they can tear your corals up. I would not put them in with corals. I`ve made that pledge.

Sorry! I completely forgot to reply to this! I thought i had, anyways i still haven't picked a fish..my LFS did get some flame angels in and a multicolored angel in. I didn't get either though since i think id try the flameback angel if i were to do an angel. The banggai cardinals are nice but we have a mated pair in the large tank and i wanted something more colorful to brighten my tank up. I was then thinking maybe a clown fish or a pair of clown fish, is there any that wont get too big for the tank? The only clown fish I've ever had was the maroon and i know he would get way too big!

O. Clowns usualy stay smallers and are probably the best suited for a tank that size.

The flasher wrasse lookes kinda neat. I just glanced at them, there looks to be a few small reef safe wrasses that might possibly work. Thanks!
