two chromis

One scooter blenny
Corals

Definitly no tangs. I would go for a reef safe wrasse. Heres a link.

If you have a covered tank I would for sure think about wrasses..How about a goby and pistol shrimp?

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

Certainly Wrasses! There are so many different kinds! They are active and colorful! Great additions!

Thanks for the ideas.. Well I went to fish store looking for wrasse the six line... But ended up coming out with two bangai cardinal fish. Lol I know their not to active but I they looked cool. Hope they do good I been reading they arent too hardy especially the wild caught.

Two bangais might not be a good choice unless you have a male and female. They are mouth brooders so the male would have the bigger jaw. Wild caught ones are caught with poison and feeding them food soaked in garlic guard seems to help with some of the after effects.

I am hoping to get one that is tank bred I know it will cost more but will be much more healthy in the long run. I know of a couple of people that had theirs breed but the they didn't make it the fry stage.

I have a tank raised male/female pair. IME they are hard to start eating. The female eats maybe 1 brine shrimp per feeding but no pellets, and my male eats 1 pellet per feeding and no brine shrimp.
