Ideas Needed to finish my 90g Stocking

My 90g has been up and running for several weeks now and I started stocking a month ago. I think i am getting close to being fully stocked (well maybe a little overstocked in the end) so I wanted some ideas for my last few fish.

So far I have:
Kleins Butterfly
Flame Hawk
Yellow Bream
Big Eye Squirrel Fish
Sixline Wrasse
Yellow Wrasse
red Coris Wrasse

I need to save room for a white tailed bristletooth tang, that's a definite must. Just waiting for him to get back into stock at live aquaria.

So I need some cool looking not very aggressive fish. I'd love a blue fish, really would like some blue in the tank. i have yellow and red covered as far as colors. lol

The fish can be NON Reef friendly as I have zero plans of making this a reef tank ever. The fish can even be semi aggressive since these are the last additions.

what do you guys think? Any ideas?

thanks so much everyone for reading and letting me have your input!

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

I have found some blue fish.
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Gudgeon Dartfish

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Pygmy (Cherub) Angelfish

Maybe a group of these would be cool.
Saltwater Aquarium Corals for Marine Reef Aquariums: Neon Blue Goby - Tank-Bred
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Jaw Tilefish
The one above is pretty cool looking!
Here is another interesting one.
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Gudgeon Dartfish, Lyretail

If you type in "blue" on LA, they give you some pretty awesome options. Not 100% sure that all of these will not get picked on by a fish like the six line though. Just some ideas to further look into.

I also think this is a really awesome-looking version of the Lemonpeel. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...83&pcatid=1683

I like the look of those blue dartfish but I'm worried they are so thin they could jump through the eggcrate I have covering the tank. I've been longing for a purple tilefish,lol, ironic that you picked one. they are supposed to be very hard to get eating which is the reason why i took it off my original stock list.

Should I replace the angel fish does anyone think? Or should i just use that spot for another fish?

AND
I'm in the process of placing another order with reefs2go for a dozen peppermint hsrimp for my 125g so I was thinking of adding on a starfish for this 90g tank. I either wanted a red knobby or a red serpent star. My fish don't eat starfish do they? I know some of them are "with caution" as far as reef tanks and a couple are "no" but no reason why.

Thanks!!

I personally think that you should replace the Angel, unless you come across another fish that you like a lot better.

How about a bicolor angel? That will get you a nice blue.

Nope, the pistol is still in the 125g. lol Won't be getting him out til I upgrade that tank. hehe.. No more pistol shrimps for me

I made an order with saltwater2go today and ordered 12 peppermint shrimp for the 125g , a purple urchin for this 90g and a red knobby starfish for the 90g as well.

I've never had an urchin before anyone have experience with them? They eat algae I guess but what else? I don't have any algae yet in the tank.

Congrats on the new critters! Remember to post pics when you get them (CUC are important too, lol). I have no clue about the Urchin, but my guess is that he will just eat anything in his path (since they are scavengers). If you are worried you could add a sheet of nori for him too .
