New fish prospect

Do you guys think that a purrple dottyback or a royal gramma would get along with my current livestock (in sig)? My main concern is my canary blenny, similar body shape...

My gramma get along with everything in my tank, clowns, blenny, goby. it spends most of it's time in the rockwork though.

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

A purple dottyback is semi-aggressive, in researching a neon they were documented attacking damsels and maroon clowns, even six lines (only tankmates I can remember off the top of my head, but the six line was added after the dotty) so they definitely aren't a fish to take lightly.

I know grammas can also be a bit aggressive, but IMO go with the gramma
