friendly small blue fish?

hi, I've got a 12g marine tank that's 3 months old, I have two turbo snails, a cleaner shrimp, a clown fish and a yellow gobi...... all going well and I'm starting to think about a third fish. The thing is I'd really like a regal tang, but I
just can't do it! I'd feel too guilty that it was too cramped in there, so can anyone suggest a smaller more suitable nice BLUE fish instead?

thanks nick.

Good choice on not doing ANY tang in a 12g tank. Check out the bi-color blenny. Very dark blue, well half of it anyways, but some blue. The other blue choice I can think of - the damsel, isn't a very nice roomate.

i think any angel would be too small for a 12G, especially with two other fish already in there.

and if you plan a reef later on the angel may eat your coral
