New Fish Ideas For 40 Breeder Reef

Hi,

I am considering adding a new fish to my 40 breeder. I only have two 1.5 inch occelaris clowns that have already claimed an area below a powerhead in the tank.

The water params are the cleanest they have ever been. My nitrates are finally at 0. Ammonia is 0. Ph is 8.1 and nitrite is 0. It's an established tank.

I would like a bigger fish, a free swimmer not a bottom dweller. I do have corals so it will have to be reef safe or "with caution" type of fish.

This is what I was planning on putting in my 40b tank once it's up and running. I will probably take 1 fish out of this stocking list but I haven't decided which one yet.

Ocellaris Clowns x2
Firefish x1
McCosker's flasher wrasse x1
Royal Gramma Basslet x1
Black Combtooth Blenny x1
Orange Stripe Prawn Goby x1
Blue Reef Chromis x1

I agree with the flasher wrasse they give a lot of movement in the tank and have great colors and personality.
