Potential new tankmate?

I have a 200 gallon FO saltwater tank with a miniatus grouper (4-5 inches), a foxface (3-4 inches), and a clown trigger (3 inches, the most recent addition).

I would like to add one more fish and am seeking advice about which fish would be most compatible with my bunch, with special emphasis on fish with reputations for being hardy and disease-resistant. I know the clown trigger has a reputation for being mean and would like to add another addition while the trigger is still small to increase the chances of everyone getting along. Likewise, I know groupers can get rather aggressive too from personal experience with a panther grouper who lived 12 years in our tank until we lost him last year.

Possible fish I've been looking at are the naso, sailfin or purple tangs and the harlequin tusk (though a bit unsure because our previous grouper hated tusks/wrasses with a vengeance and we recently had a tusk that died). I'm VERY open to other suggestions and would appreciate any advice you have.

How about a full size french, or gray angel?

A tank that size would be great for a puffer. They have a great personality and I'm pretty sure it would do just fine with those tankmates.

You have lots of options. I to agree with the angels. There are so many beautiful angels out there. French, Emporor, Passer Queen to name a few. How is the Clown Trigger? One of my favorite fish.

One thing I was thinking about the angels though is wouldn't it be almost necessary to have some sort of natural cleaner. (shrimp/neon goby) This would not be possible with those predatory fish. IME at least angels love to be cleaned, and usually are the first fish to get sick.
