restocking my 55 - yellowstripe maroon clownfish?

I want to get a yellowstripe maroon clownfish (single, I think a pair may be too much aggression).

I'm wondering if it will be fine with 2 green chromis, a royal gramma, coral beauty, and a kole tang. I will be restocking to have this but don't want any trouble!

I looked at a Yellowstripe in a store and bought because it was already hosting a bubbletip and got a great deal on the two! However what I didn't know was that they have a tendancy to turn very dark! Here is before and after

IMO they are the most beautiful clownfish.
What other fish do you have in the tank and how is the clownfish's temperment?

I have 2 green chromis, royal gramma, aptasia eating filefish, sixline wrasse, he doesnt bother any unless the swim close to his anemone then he darts at them but has never hurt any. If I put my hand close to the anemone he tries to bite, lol

I didn't know that they turn dark either!

Do you know what kind of Bubble Tip that it is?

How is your tang doing? I am setting up a 55g and am thinking of how I want to stock it. I LOVE tangs but from my understanding I should get one if I only have a 55g???
