Tankmates??

Currently have a 75 gallon FOWLR tank, all parameters are stable and the system is doing its job. In the tank i have a yellow tang and a niger trigger (its only an inch and a half). What kind of tankmate can i get for them. I only want one more fish but i am up in the air about which one. I do not want a puffer of lionfish (too messy of eaters). So i am looking for something fairly docile yet colorful, both the niger and tang are very peaceful together but i know this could change if the wrong tankmate was introduced.

So............Any suggestions??

Thanks
SJS

You could go with a pygmy angel as there are quite a few to choose from. Check www.liveaquaria.com

What about a Wrasse, found a couple and they seem to be compatible with everything i have.

Here are some i like:

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=356

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=380

Leaning more towards #2 & #3. Any one ever keep one of these species?

Then again i like the look of that angel, tough tough choice!

Thanks

arent the triggers supposed to be semi-aggressive? maybe not now since he is small but once they get bigger...you may want to get something that can hold its own like an angle or wrasse....

Niger triggers are the most doscile of the triggers. I had one with a lion, henni, and porcy. She stayed to herself but was very active in the tank. Take it for what it's worth, my LFS had a display with niger, clowns, and 2 varieties of tangs. All seem to be fine with each other. Beatuful tank!!!!!

I have to agree with the fact that Niger Triggers are peaceful. Mine sticks with the tang all the time, he wont leave his side. He likes to dig in the sand and hide himself in the LR and he always sleeps in the same spot at night. Quite interesting to watch!

Thanks for all the suggestions, i think i am going to go with a Harlequin Tusk wrasse!
