Tell him the tangs are mean and beat up other fish (they're semi aggressive). Grammas are peaceful, and their color can't be beat

Gammas are kind of small huh? :/ I think I rather have one larger fish in the tank. At least one. Can't think of anything that are compatible with a reef tank. Anyone with ideas?

Coral beauty. Dwarf angel. They are with caution, but mine doesn't touch my sps.

I don't know. I really love the look for both coral beauty and a dwarf angel but I'm hesitant to get either because of my reef and clam. Not sure how I'd feel about them getting pestered. I had that problem with my banner fish. Tore up my acans and zoas! :/ not sure I want to endure that again.

Flame angels are nice, not sure about how good they are w/ reefs though.

I believe they are reef safe with caution. I think I'm done with the caution ones... Lol. I started giving my banner fish nori and it tore it up but still nipped at the corals. I rather keep my corals and clam safe from any fish. I just may have to figure this one out...

My LFS wasn't listed as a retailer, but they sell it. Even my freshwater guys love it as a treat.

I do feel bad giving it to my cleaner shrimp though...it's like he's being a little cannibal (Yeah, I know that fish food is made with fish, too)...

For now this is what I have :

4x blue green chromis
1x blue damsel

Debating on keeping the damsel as it is very hard to catch and not to mention aggressive/territorial.

Here's what I want:
2x clowns (debating on having just one)

He wants: a yellow tang
(since I wouldn't let him get an other banner fish.)
Trying to convince him of getting a royal gamma instead,
Love blue damsels and yellow tangs. What about a foxface?
