I think a sixline might harrass a royal gramma.They have the potential to become quite aggressive little fish.

I ended up with a royal gamma today so now I need to decide what fish will be next. I have thought about the PJ fish but thought they were more of a schooling fish. The little store I go to doesn't have a lot of different fish that they normally stock so if I really want something other than they have I will have to special order it.
Are there any dwarf angelfish that are reef safe?

Yellow watchman gobys are reef safe and stay small. As for thincat's suggestion, you could try like 3 PJ's they stay small and are colorful, active fish. They don't have to be in a school, but they are alot happier if they have some buddys.

No dwarf angel is a sure bet. Some are reportedly more "reef-safe" than others, like the coral beauty or flame... but the potential is always there that they will pick at corals. Others, like the lemonpeel or eibli, reportedly almost never work out in a reef.

I am planning on adding another fish in about 2 or 3 weeks. I do like the goby, are they safe with bristleworms since I have a couple in there that are pretty big about 5 inches give or take a little. I would like to find one fish that isn't real shy.

They are safe with bristleworms. They are very bright (color wise....).

A forktail blenny might be a good choice as well.

Once I get a list of fish I will go to the LFS and find out if they can get me what I want, I know that I better have a 3rd and 4th choice. We are going to be on a first name bases soon.
