What about a trio of flasher wrasses?

There is some debate about it but I think some fire fish could work.

How about blue reef chromis? I had a bunch of them and it took years for them to slowly dwindle to 2. They are bigger than the blue/greens and I really liked them. I even had 2 of mine pair up and they laid eggs.

I have 7 blue green ones right now and they are inseparable so far. other than they keep jumping into my overflow they are pretty neat.

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

I have 5 blue/green chromis. They've been in my tank almost 2 months and always swim together. No fighting yet and really cool to watch. Even my blue tang and clowns swim with them a lot

I have heard that you need to get an odd number for them to be successful. I would try 3 of them. What type are you going to get?

I was thinking about lyretails because i like the coloring differences between the males and females. So it would be best to get one mail and 2 females rather than 1 male and 3 females.

I am also looking into 3 lyretails for my 90 gallon that is currently cycling. If you decide to do this you will have to keep me updated on them.
