Lemonpeel angels are just as yellow as a yellow tang. Very pretty fish.

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

Mystery wrasses are reef safe and could be ok in your tank. They are very colorful so if your looking for something striking, this might be the perfect fish.

I have a coral beauty in my reef...though I'd trade it in for another orange back wrasse ever since I stumbled upon one a week or 2 ago. Amazingly colorful reef safe wrasse.

I know I'll be the bad guy on this but I think the yellow eyed kole tang or one of the other bristle tooth tangs would be ok in a 55. They are rated for a 70 gallon tank and dont swim as much as the other tangs. JMO.

Do you think if I got it small I could keep it long enough for it to go into a bigger tank in a year or so

I had a yellow eyed kole tang in a 55 for seven years and then moved it into a 125 for the last 8 yrs. Im only talking about the bristle tooth tangs.
